Design Life is a podcast about design and side projects for motivated creators. It was born after your hosts, two serial side project addicts, saw a gap in the podcast market for a conversational show about design and the issues young creatives face, that was hosted by two females.
This show aims to tackle the big issues designers face like getting paid, overcoming a creative block or managing time, to name a few. We want to open up discussion about things we wish we heard people talk about when we were studying, and we want to chat to you about the joys and the frustrations of working in the tech industry by day, and on our passion projects in the rest of our waking hours. We hope that by doing so, Design Life will give you a dose of motivation or inspiration when you need it.

201: Being the only designer on the team
What's it like being a solo designer, the only designer on a team or even in an entire company?
This topic was requested by a listener who was looking for our insights on how to embrace the opportunity and overcome the challenges that come with being a solo designer. While the responsibility and experience can lead to a great challenge it can be an isolating role and feeling connected to the design community at large can be a struggle. We speak about how you can keep growing as a solo designer while encouraging your team to take design seriously.
