Very creative and inspirational

I loved Marina’s episode! Her stories were very inspirational. It is great to see someone being the pioneer in a field that no one really knows about. Future of businesses is about being more connected and more kind and service design is really the way to get there. Such a great podcast. Thank you

Another perspective on the world of Design and Product

This podcast aims to be a way for designers and product people to share their outlook on their craft. The twist resides in the fact that a lot of the interviewees are coming from countries and backgrounds we are less used to. A great way to broaden your horizon.
