episode 340: Billy Almon

I first heard of Billy Almon at last year’s Black in Design Conference, and I was so energized by his talk that I knew I would have to have him on the podcast to share his story with you all. Being a biology-inspired storyteller and designer might sound a bit peculiar, but wait until you hear how vital and important his work is to all of us. Billy started off with a primer on biomimicry, and then shared how his experience with Hurricane Katrina changed the course of his life forever...

I first learned about Erwin Hines last year when we profiled him for 28 Days of the Web.
