35: Senate Design Overcommittee (feat. Noah Stokes)

June 17, 2015

For episode 35, we finally convinced the Motherfuton himself, Mr. Noah Stokes, to come hang with us for a bit and talk about lazy web design, ornamentation vs utility, design education and so much more. It was super fun to pick his brain for an hour or so and he brought up some frequently overlooked shortcomings of how we build the web today.

In case you haven't noticed, we were nominated for Podcast of the Year at The Net Awards! If you can spare the time, we would very much appreciate a vote!

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