    Bonus: Leading design teams: from seed to scale on CogX2021. With Diego Mendes – Design Manager, Facebook and Jessica Ko – CEO, Playbook. Former employees of Google, Opendoor, Chegg, Pocket, Meebo.

    Here's a bonus episode where I talked with the seasoned leaders Diego Mendes and Jessica Ko on CogX2021 Festival 2021. We discussed some of the challenges on hiring your first designers and growing your team:
    Should Product Design, Marketing and Branding be in the same team?
    Should you hire an unicorn designer?
    How to hire diverse talent?

    If you're a founder and don't know who to hire on the design side, this is for you. If you're a new head of design trying to grow a team, this is for you.
