Show Summary

Thank you for listening to this Ask Like a Designer episode of the Design Thinking 101 Podcast.

In these short Ask Like a Designer episodes on the Design Thinking 101 podcast, you’ll find new ways to explore the show’s stories and ideas about design-driven innovation. I’ll share methods, templates, and ideas that have worked in my practice in teaching. This episode is about six people, six designers whose different roles and favorite questions drive how I serve clients, teach, and develop as a designer.

This episode is based on this article: ALD 001 // Ask Like a Designer. Read the article and others like it on Fluid Hive’s Ask Like a Designer.
