    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) -

    and latest ones here -

    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:

  • Posted to New article out: The Falafel Method for UI Design, Aug 17, 2017

    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

  • Posted to AMA: Figma 2.0, Jul 27, 2017

    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)

  • Posted to Freelancing: How did you get your first client?, May 14, 2017

    I wrote a full article about that (just shared it to DN): The same method that worked for me to get my first clients was the same method I used to launch 2 design communities. Good luck to everyone out there looking for their first client! Go get 'em!

  • Posted to Same for starting to freelance: How to start building an audience when you don’t have any audience yet, May 14, 2017

    Hey all, I founded 2 design blogs, and a freelance career, and one of the most popular questions I hear after any public speaking gig I take on is: "How can I start building an audience when I don’t have any audience yet?"

    so... I tackled this question in an absolutely no-bullshit, 3-months-in-the-making article :)

    Hope you'll enjoy it! Thought if I should share it here - but here is where I came from! So would love for you to read it :)
