Design influences the world around us every day. We chat with designers, illustrators, photographers, and others to find out the stories that made them want to get into the creative world as a career, and talk with chefs, bartenders, restaurateurs and anyone else that uses their creative talent about how they use their creative talents to design their menus and restaurants.
If you have suggestions for guests or questions about the show, please reach out to us on Twitter @feastondesign.
This week on the Creative South Podcast, I’m talking with Chicago-based UX Designer Sharlene King. We chat about her struggles after she came out as gay and not being supported by her family, the challenges she faced in school from learning disabilities and dropping out of high school, being on the autism spectrum and how it’s become and asset in her work, and more.
