Black-owned Packaging Design Agency, Mind The Font | Ep 62

Black-owned Packaging Design Agency, Mind The Font | Ep 62

Kirk Visola, Founder and Creative Director of Mind the Fun, Co-host of Clubhouse's Kirk and Kurtts (Andy Kurtts), and Monday's with Marilyn (Kirk's mom) joins PDU to have a discussion about race and design. Kirk shares the experiences he's had as a black designer, learning that design could lead to a career, and his passion for comics.

We discuss everything from updating his LinkedIn profile with an image for the first time, interviews, his sketch process, and how design can take a couple days to a couples weeks.
