  3. Building a UX Team & Educating Designers with Aarron Walter (VP of Design Education at InVision)

    What does it mean to build a strong UX team and when should a company look to do that? With no formal education path, how should designers be cultivating their abilities? In this episode, Austin sits down with Aarron Walter (VP of Design Education at InVision) to discuss what it was like to build the UX Team at MailChimp and what his vision is for the future of education in design.

    "A lot of times, designers want to refine. They want to change the typeface, adjust the kerning, or tweak the button color. A lot of engineers will see that and think that’s self-indulgent. That’s another thing that designers really struggle with. And I’ll be honest, designers kind of just suck at talking about the value of their work." — Aarron at 29:30
