Customer Reviews

Enjoy the various perspectives!

I really enjoy listening to this podcast - it’s always great to hear from peers and industry professionals making their way in various design jobs that you can easily relate to and be inspired by.

Fresh, Funny and Fascinating look at Design and the Life of Designers

This Is Design School is a great podcast for anyone but a must for fellow designers! It is a fascinating, fresh and funny inside look at the lives of other designers. This is THE PODCAST for designers who are always aspiring to learn more about the creative process and who want to relate their experiences with that of others.

Love it!

I love the idea of this podcast. I think as it progresses, it could turn into an extremely useful tool for people who are in school, about to graduate or just starting off a career in the world of design.

It is really important as a designer, to understand different perspectives, and this podcast does just that. It allows people to see the different struggles new designers are faced with, as well as the triumphs they get to experience.

I would definitely suggest listening to this podcast!
