ABOUT THIS EPISODE:
He’s been super influential in design, but also in business and culture as an advocate for design and designers have a seat at the table. If you’ve noticed design become much more highly prized in business over the last decade or so, he’s one of the people responsible for that shift in thinking- as he talks about in this episode, when he arrived in the Bay Area in the 90s design was seen as window dressing, but thanks to the efforts of people like Yves, IDEO, frog and their peers we now have a very different view of design and see it as integral to building a successful business.
- He talks about how – contrary to what many think – the best way for designers to get a chance to have a seat at the table is to double down on their craft and become world-class at one thing”
- We talk about how to turn off your brain when needed, quieting that relentless critical voice that all creators have
- And we also get into more detail on the evolution of design culture in the US- how companies like Apple and Target helped make designers more visible and more valued as core members of the team at the center of the business
