Where the design community meets.
Welcome to episode three of DN FM. Through interviews, news and Office Hours community segments, DN FM aims to spark a meaningful conversation on design.

He dives into Behance's mission to empower the creative world - and his personal journey thereof. Scott also explains the implications of the interface layer, and concludes with his shift into venture capital.

Yay! Can anyone confirm whenever the audio issues are finally fixed in this episode?
I did the VO for episode with a sound shield and added noise reduction afterwards.
Hopefully, the audio on my end sounds better than in previous episodes.
