The Hustle is a show dedicated to the evolution of the craft of digital product design. We chat with product design captains, inspiring designers, thought leaders, agency owners, and the Funsize team about about life, leadership, design and culture. Hosted by Funsize's Partner and Head of Design, Anthony Armendariz
Leading with Vision (Toke Nygaard, Zendesk)
"What a wonderful world it would be if I just sat and had one thing to do, and just kept optimizing and making it better, and growing it and testing it and living with it."
Our Journey Through 2020 (Anthony and Natalie Armendariz, Funsize)
"This pandemic has reminded people that we're all humans dealing with the same thing."
The Not-So-Secret Life of Design Managers (Ted Boda, Instagram)
"I think continuing being able to learn and build on your experience and build on your skillsets, really trying to improve as a professional and even personally. That's why i've been there so long and why I will continue to stay. Because I keep getting those opportunities to learn and be surrounded by incredibly smart people."
Designing Community and Culture on a Global Scale (Margaret Lee, Google)
"Ultimately, what we want to do is connect the community. It is my belief that you can have a lot of great amenities. But the big differentiator in whether somebody would want to stay with a company is: Do they feel like they belong there? Do they have that network that keeps them inspired?"
Strengthen Your Team by Focusing on the Individual (Braden Kowitz, Range)
"We're working at objectives from the other direction: How do we make a really great experience for individuals and then eventually build up to something that works for the whole organization?"
Adaptability in the World of Workshop Facilitation (Douglas Ferguson, Voltage Control)
"One thing I think is a telltale sign that it's not necessarily a good time for a design sprint ... is when someone in leadership read the book and is like, 'we need to do a design sprint.' It's like a hammer looking for a nail."
Not the average Design podcast. The Hustle podcast taps into a side of the industry I don’t normally see but is super fascinating to hear about. Highly recommend.
Looking to grow as a designer or product manger? I HIGHLY recommend this podcast!
Great for all designers of all experience levels!
I would highly recommend!
