    Episode 14: #MorethanGraphics with Danielle Meadows-Stinnett

    In this episode with Danielle Meadows-Stinnett we are talking all things graphic design and being true to who you are.

    Danielle is the owner of minority-led branding agency Octane Design Studios and is also a podcaster, mentor, wife, mom of 4, and lover of cosplay, comics, chai tea, and live MMA. She chooses to mimic her Creator, living humbly & laughing often.

    With over 12 years of marketing and multimedia agency experience, Danielle is a Grassroots Developer & Curator, helping brand and launch over 100 local businesses across America; ⅔ in Kentucky. She is always seeking to amplify voices and stories to both inspire and evoke change whether designing digital campaigns or designer sneakers. Danielle is also an advocate of non-traditional education, leading online meetups, and workshops for DIY marketing, motivated by her belief in empowering others.

    Although Danielle is passionate about providing creative services, she strives to be more than just the graphics she creates. Over the years her hashtag #MoreThanGraphics has become a life principle for herself, one she executes through storytelling and sharing life chronicles as producer and co-host of the #MoreThanGraphics podcast.
