What you will learn:
This Podcast takes you beyond the fundamental knowledge of what XGD is, to the dynamics of working in a design team. It is through the sharing of Pia’s own personal war stories that we will explore building a team, work critiques, and what someone with 12 years of experience can still learn. From someone who is self-taught, to someone who is mentoring, what can we do to make the next generation better than us?
We will learn the process of gradual or unconscious assimilation of ideas, knowledge and how they all play a role in the growth of one’s design career.
