    We could not be more excited to welcome this week’s guest and literal sister of the pod, Andrea Karrys. She's an experimental product manager, a blazered-up baddie and business school lassie. Andrea talks the cohosts through the fantastic world of NFTs and experimental product management, all while inspiring us to wear more sundresses in 2022!

    33. Goal setting for designers

    33. Goal setting for designers

    Whilst it's almost the end of March, this episode was recorded mid-January when some of the 'New Year' chat was more appropriate. Regardless, it is not almost the start of Q2 of 2022, so hopefully these tips help you with your Q1 review and onwards planning. 

    In this week's episode, Lauren, YuXin and Lavinia chat about their goals, their approaches to setting them and some tips on how to make them stick. And because we work in tech, the usual acronyms are also going to make an appearance. Expect to hear about OKRs and SMART goals.

    Special thanks to @matt_beadnall for the music and Phil for calling into the Hotline Design Hotline this week!

    Don't forget you can always record a question for us at https://anchor.fm/hotlinedesignpod

    32. International Women's Day Special: Sisterhood x Hotline Design

    32. International Women's Day Special: Sisterhood x Hotline Design

    This week on Hotline Design, we have the pleasure of welcoming the phenomenal Rachita and Rebecca of Sisterhood School + Studio, whose mission is to bring design education to the 21st century by using creativity as the vehicle for social change to positively impact girls and their futures. They share their journey of starting Sisterhood, from bonding together at design school to testing and persisting with their idea of running long-term creative programmes for girls aged 13-18. Rachita and Rebecca also share what design means to them - both as the creators of Sisterhood programmes and accomplished designers in their own right. In this episode, we also switch things up by interviewing Zainab, a former Sisterhood student, in the Hotline Design Hotline section.

    We hope you enjoy the conversation - just in time for International Women's Day!

    30. Onboarding journeys that work for both your users and your product

    It's a new year and a new milestone, episode 30! This week, we're tackling onboarding journeys and ensuring they deliver value. We've all been there, clicking 'skip' on 10 modals or closing a boring video attempting to explain the product to us. In this episode, the cohosts are offering their experience and tips on how to make them successful.

Fun, informative and interesting content

I’ve been listening to this for the past couple of weeks and I found it to be very funny, the girls seem very passionate about UX, while maintaining it quite relaxed and approachable. Lots of jokes and giggles sprinkled throughout. The content covers a lot of interesting topics from design teams of 1 to techniques tips and tricks and the guests provide valuable insight. Love the phone call questions at the end and looking forward to listening to more episodes.
