Tell us about yourself:

I’m Kameron Davis, an aerospace engineer-turned-designer skilled in lettering, motion, branding, and web design. As a Black designer, Kameron is proud to play a part in showcasing design as a viable career path for the next generation of underrepresented designers. Currently I work full-time as a freelance designer under my own creative studio called PWR. In my free time I enjoy working on other artistic endeavors.

What is the inspiration behind your poster design?

It is inspired by a human approach. I’ve always struggled when things I make are made to look too perfect. So most of my work is very crafty looking. I also love lettering so any opportunity I get to play with letters is always fun.

Why do you love being creative?

I love being a creative because It really gives me an opportunity to get things out of my head. Sometimes its the only way I can truly relax. Also creativity feels so much better to me than consumption so it really feels like the only way I can live sometimes. I think there can be so much joy in creating from trying something new to just thinking through a creative problem at the end something new is born and that feels really cool.

Tell us about your experiences in the design world…

I feel like being black in design has definitely been hard, but has been better than my black experience in the engineering world. The engineering world felt so cold and like I was never going to be understood. Design still has its problems, but it has felt way more welcoming.

How can we create a more inclusive design world and ensure that Black people are represented?

By creating digital and physical spaces for designers to exist and create an effort to get more of us to get to know each other. The more physical time spent together and conversations had the better off we will all be.

In general… How can we make more equity or equality for us?

In some ways I don’t know the answer to this question. I feel like with the falling of DEI at this moment I don’t know how we will ever truly be accepted by ‘everyone else’. So maybe that is okay and maybe we start with supporting each other and building between each other. Kind of all we got.
