    Hi Khoi, longtime reader here.

    Three questions:

    • What has been your experience in transitioning from designer to design manager? Pitfalls, lessons?
    • Do you think older candidates / self-taught designers face a disadvantage vs. kids fresh out of school?
    • Has design, like many professions, become something you need to be wealthy to even get started in (or go into debt to do), i.e. going to a recognized school/program, or finding paid internships?

    I can't imagine how low-income students could manage it these days.
