Great rambling

And little bit of advice from two great guys I guess. I never met them 🦔💦

Awesomeness in a nutshell❗️

Unpretentious, humorous and laid back, yet thrillingly insightful!

D-Leth ,

A podcast on Design Sprint.

This is the most fun podcast about the Design Sprint. How it works and where it doesn't work. I love this international collaboration between San Francisco and Berlin.

Big Thumbs up from the UN Design City of Kolding, Denmark.
