    Rethinking Your Meetings! Did you know workers lose nearly three hours per week to UNNECESSARY meetings!
    This results in FRAGMENTED schedules and video fatigue.

    Meetings are one of the biggest time sinks in organizations today. They consistently sabotage employees' productivity--especially in our new era of hybrid work. Why? They've become the cause for many other activities--coffee chats, brainstorming, happy hours, and more. Research by Harvard Business School professors found that as the pandemic unfolded, employees added 13 percent more meetings to their calendars.

    In this episode, the gang reviews an awesome article with tips and suggestions to help you rescue you and your team from meeting chaos!

    TEST PILOTS | How Creatives Can Manage Mental Health Part 2 | DGDC

    TEST PILOTS | How Creatives Can Manage Mental Health Part 2 | DGDC

    As a designer in a fast-paced and demanding position, it can be tempting to let your mental health take a back seat during stressful periods. However, those are the moments when it becomes even more important to exercise proper discipline.

    Mike, Rubaie, Steven, and Narek discuss how stress and work affect their mental health, as well as their process for staying in a positive mindset. They speak with Francisco Reyes Jr, also known as “Nevermade”, about his battles with mental health and depression, as well as with Mitch Goldstein about a “Maker’s Mindset” and why it’s important to allow yourself to feel a full range of emotions as a creative.

GuerreMarco ,

Great podcast!

This podcast gave me the confidence to keep going with my career. I thought I wasn’t doing good because of the issues that I came across, but it turns out that most designers go through the same struggles. I wish you guys had time at the end of each episode to answer listener's questions. Great job guys!

Designing boredom

They used to have occasionally good content. I don’t always agree with their takes and that fine. Difference of opinion is vital and common in design however I hope their clients don’t listen and honestly outside of Nick they all seem rather egotistical which as a designer myself is a trait I’ve never understood quite frankly (maybe due to design being my second career path). Typically as of the last year I look at the subject title, listen for five minutes and 8 out of 10 times I just delete it. I’ve found more helpful instructions from online such as satori graphics (not very humble but knowledgeable), dansky and a few others.

Liked it better before

As a longtime graphic designer, I don’t always agree with their take on things, but that’s fine. What isn’t fine with me are the sudden stream of F-bombs spewing from from the hosts’ mouths. If I can’t listen to it with my kids while driving, I won’t be listening at all. Sorry gang, but I’m done with it.
