Podcast with Karthi Subbaraman on Recession & Design

Check out this amazing thread written by our listener, Anshuman on this episode and his thoughts how designers should prepare for the future:


If you’ve lost your job or have some indications of it or confused about the current times, trust me, it can be hard and it’s easy to get caught up in the details but I implore you to keep an eye on the bigger picture. Maintaining perspective is the best advantage you can have during these times. It may give you a strategic edge and will help you manage your emotional state better and stay sane (which, let’s be real, is an asset in and of itself).

None of us have much control over timing. Things are changing very quickly and what’s true today may no longer be true tomorrow. We hope this episode gives you enough perspective on how you as a designer can manage yourself well and if you have any questions do hit reply and we’ll get them answered in another episode soon.
