28. How To Hire And Work With UX Designers

Great design is at the centre of the apps and sites we love. Bad design can kill a product, even if the underlying technology is world class.

Knowing how to hire the right designer and work with them effectively is a key skill all product makers need to have to succeed.

Listen to this episode to learn from Jasper Squier, MD at Intergalactic, a creative technology agency, and Ben West, Co-Founder of Eventbase, which mobile apps for the world’s premium events.

Learning notes from this episode:

  • Always work with designers before hiring developers
  • Come to UX designers with a problem you want to solve, rather than a feature list
  • When you're thinking of target users for your product, think about their behaviour, not just demographics
