    Episode 94 - Design is a mindset, not a skillset

    Episode 94 - Design is a mindset, not a skillset

    After an initial kick-off with Neeva and its disappointing Digital Bill of Rights (https://neeva.co/digital-bill-of-rights), Guus and Joe turn to the topic of how design jobs are changing. They put fourth that design is a mindset and way of thinking that forms a foundation of a designers toolbox, but as product platforms grow (voice, chat, bots, AR, VR), designers need to specialise their skills and take control of their own destiny. Designers can’t assume because they did mobile UI, they can appropriately handle VR. Instead, they need to invest their own time learning new skills if they hope to take on new types of work and stay relevant in the changing technology landscape.
