150: Ashleigh Axios

July has been such an amazing month, and I'm so excited to celebrate our 150th episode with a conversation with the incomparable Ashleigh Axios. She's an international speaker, a strategic creative, a member of the national board of directors for AIGA, president emeritus for AIGA DC, and is the former creative director for the White House under President Obama's administration. Whoa! We talked about the work Ashleigh's done during her tenure at the White House, and she shared which project challenged her the most as well as what it's like actually working in such close proximity with some of the nation's top officials. Ashleigh also gave her thoughts on whether the administration's current focus on tech and design would continue into the future, and we went into her current work with AIGA. Ashleigh is a huge advocate for design's ability to break barriers and create positive social change, and I think we will definitely see more from her in the future! Here's to 150 episodes!
