    Season 2: Pixel Perfect with Joanna Mahoney

    Season 2: Pixel Perfect with Joanna Mahoney

    Joanna Mahoney, an in-house graphic designer at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts. For the majority of 2020, she and her team worked hard to produce meaningful digital content for Museum members and visitors to engage with from the comfort of their homes. Mahoney is also known for her impressive talents in motion graphics, illustration, and hand-lettering art. Before completing her master's degree in Graphic Design at Suffolk University, Mahoney earned her undergraduate degree in Theater Studies at Emerson College, where she learned the ins and outs of designing the set and prop pieces for theater and film. Her creative journey is certainly full of twists and turns and is super exciting.


    We had a fun conversation not only catching up as a mini Suffolk alumni reunion, but discussing her design journey of becoming a leader in inspiring women, particularly young female creatives to break the wage gap, be open to talking about their “imposter syndrome” struggles, and be brave to pursue their leadership positions with confidence and joy in the creative field. Throughout this talk, you will also discover her grassroots Valkyrie mentorship campaign, her #100dayproject on Instagram, her passion for theater, and her other beautiful artworks.

    Season 1: Pixel Perfect with Cody Johnston

    Season 1: Pixel Perfect with Cody Johnston

    Guest Description:


    Every designer knows how challenging it is when first starting out their creative journey whether as a freelancer or a team member of an organization. Cody Johnston, a UX/UI designer, a branding expert, and a creative director, shares his experience and valuable lessons he has learned along the way in this guest episode. Our conversation ignites when Cody describes his design process that taps on many facets including solving problems for clients takes a collaborative effort by listening to them more rather than having the spotlight on designers themselves. Another point we love about this episode is that Cody believes design is an act of contribution to others' well-being. A very insightful and dazzling conversation that we hope you'll enjoy.
