Hey everyone, in this episode we talked to Maria Giudice.
Maria founded and led a design studio named ‘Hot Studio’ for over 15 years, which was eventually acquired by Facebook, where she became a Director of Product Design.
Later on, she took another big leap, left facebook to take on the role of VP Creative at Autodesk, where she focused on building a customer-centric company and leading a design team of ‘change agents’.
Recently, Maria left Autodesk and is now taking her time to contemplate her next career move.

When I entered the role of design manager in the previous company I worked for, I just decided to interview the best design leaders out there. I recorded those interviews and made them into a podcast. Here you go :)
Find some here (from the starting point) - http://hackingui.com/podcast/page/3/
and latest ones here - http://hackingui.com/
People I interviewed include Billy Keily (VP product at Invision), Melissa Hajj (Design Manager at Facebook), Jon Lax (Design Director at Facebook), Emmet Connoly (Director of Design at Intercom) Katie Dill (Former Director of UX at Airbnb), Khoi Vinh (Director of Design at Adobe XD) and more.
Enjoy their wisdom :) I certainly learned everything from them.
It's always like that - when you do something good, all of those who don't do or haven't done good enough, and/or are not happy with themselves will criticize you for it.
Helen's site is awesome. Tobias's site is awesome.
If you're one of those people criticizing here, please reflect on your own portfolio... Oh, yeah, nobody is talking about it on DN. Oh, yeah, you haven't let your personality shine through it. Oh, yeah, you don't have a unique 'hip' look.
Obscurity is your worst enemy driving you away from success. Seems like Helen and Tobias got shit together and you don't.
Get your shit together, get out there and do something awesome that would make people talk! Go out there and use your talent to influence people, to inspire.
Besides their portfolios, Tobias and Helen are writing amazing, inspiring articles. They're spilling their guts out on (digital) paper and that moves people and inspires them to be better designers and makers.
"When was the last time I empowered people with something I've put together?" That's the question that each and every one of us needs to ask him/her self.
You can always launch a blog or a podcast. I wrote about my side project stories here: http://hackingui.com/product-hacking/side-projects/
Hey all, I would like to share with you this method which I developed in my previous work as a design director at SimilarWeb and have kept using ever since.
This method helps me enjoy my work more, and be more productive as a designer, and yes, it has a direct connection to a famous Israeli dish
May I suggest the Hacking UI Podcast? We've interviewed top designers, entrepreneurs and devs like Jon Lax, Katie Dill, Matt Mullenweg (founder of WP), David Okuniev (founder of Typeform), Chris Coyier, and more. You're welcome to check it out: http://hackingui.com/podcast
First of all - I wanted to thank you for putting an awesome tool out in to the world. I am currently a heavy Sketch user, but been totally following Figma closely and waiting to see if it makes me switch.
My question to you is: Is Figma going to release any sort of API or open plugin community like Sketch has done? It seems like that's something that a lot of designers would love.
Thanks again! Sagi (from Hacking UI)

Hey everyone, This week we're sharing our talk with none other than Samuel Hulick, Founder of UserOnboard.com!
Samuel started as a developer, and eventually found himself focusing on UX design and customer success. That led him to find that one crucial part of the experience that leads customers to succeed: User Onboarding. From there, he only kept moving forward. He became a User Onboarding Specialist, founded UserOnboard.com, and wrote a book about it.
Hope you enjoy this talk as much as we did. We're so happy to share it with ya'll :)
