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.
210: Our plans for 2021
As has become tradition on the Design Life podcast, we take the first episode of the new year to talk about our goals, our hopes and our intentions for the year ahead. Although there is a lot of uncertainty about what 2021 will hold, it is still possible to think about what you would like to achieve and how you can go about bringing your goals to fruition. In this episode we discuss our goals for side hustle income, new projects, old projects and self care.
209: Reflecting on our careers & side hustles in 2020
In this season, it is always good to take the time to reflect on the year that has passed and review what you have accomplished in your career and side hustles.
208: Should you use a Notion doc as your portfolio?
Today on Design Life we’re talking about a new trend we’ve seen with portfolio sites, using a non traditional tool to create a portfolio, like a Notion doc.
207: Outsourcing work and hiring help for side projects
As two busy creators with side projects and full time jobs we have recently needed a little extra help, which we have found in the form of outsourcing work we previously did ourselves.
206: How to have productive meetings
In this episode of Design Life we discuss how to have a productive meeting, remotely.
205: How designers could use Facebook ads to get clients
On today’s episode of Design Life we are joined by a special guest, Mojca Žove, owner of Super Spicy Media and social media advertising expert. During our conversation, Mojca very generously shared her expertise, teaching us both a lot about how to make the most of social media advertising and changing our feelings about using social media to advertise from creepy to curious.
This is one of my favorite podcasts, always inspiring and fun to listen to!
