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. #designleadership #google #facebook #opendoor #chegg #pocket #meebo #playbook #branding #marketing #cogx2021 #cogx --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/cellsandpixels/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/cellsandpixels/support
