    Episode 23 - Fostering Simplicity and Finding a Shared Language with Kamilah Benjamin

    Kamilah Benjamin is a creative director and UX designer at Statefarm Insurance, a freelance brand design consultant, a leader and mentor in debt management, healthy living, and decluttering. And if that wasn't enough, she spends her free time practicing photography, designing typography and doing floral arrangement. In this episode of the podcast, Sophia and Kamilah discuss how to navigate corporate acronym overload, the importance of mindset while living amid the sometimes abrupt changes of the post-Covid world, and how to keep all the details in high complexity UX projects from falling through the cracks.

IDer interested in UX ,

Great podcast!

Sophia is a great, fun host with a strong background in the field. I love her honesty and her fun interview style. I would definitely recommend this podcast to anyone interested in UX.

Ali Kimm ,

Fun and Insightful!

I’ve only listened to episode 1 so far, but Sophia is an entertaining host! She and her guest were fun to listen to, and as a new UX designer, I learned a lot from her and her guest sharing about their several years of working in UX. I’ll definitely continue to listen!

AtlannuhMan ,

Fun and motivational!

These are conversations I can really sink my geek teeth into and the first two episodes have left me with fun, actionable stuff I can try to make myself and my work better. I look forward to listening to future episodes!!
