Research is such an important part of the design process, and no one can attest to that fact more than Renee Reid. As senior UX design researcher at LinkedIn, the process of search and discovery is crucial to her work in helping connect professionals worldwide.
Renee walked me through a typical day working with project managers, designers, and other researchers, and we touched on the increasing popularity of UX roles in the design industry. She also shared some of the goals she has for the year, and talks about what fuels her drive for success. Major props to Renee for blazing a trail and showing the next generation of designers they’re not alone in this field!

“Regardless of your dreams, don’t let anyone stop you.” When Harrison Wheeler, told me this before our interview, I knew that we were going to have a good conversation on our hands. Harrison is the design manager at Base, a customer relationship management tool used by entrepreneurs to help track clients and set up a sales process so your business runs more efficiently.
We started off by going through a typical day for Harrison, and he shared what he thinks makes someone a good design manager. From there, he talked about how he first got involved in design, his entrepreneurial days at the University of Iowa, and we talked a bit about diversity in design as it relates to hiring. (And he is hiring!) Harrison really had a lot of great information to share, and I think anyone interested in more about product design or design management should definitely give this episode a listen. Thanks to Ron Bronson for the introduction!
