36: 10x (feat. Meng To)

June 22, 2015

For episode 36, we got to spend some time with Meng To discussing what makes a great product, how to get started with design and development, and what it takes to build a thing. Meng's an incredibly talented creator and we're grateful he was able to take a break from helping people get started in our industry to hang out with us for an hour or so!

In case you haven't noticed, we were nominated for Podcast of the Year at The Net Awards! There's about 2 weeks left and we would love it if you'd take a minute to vote for us!

If you have feedback or suggestions please don’t hesitate to reach out to us on Twitter at @designdetailsfm!
