Good episode? Give it some love!
"We are the Test Pilots, 4 young designers exploring advice that “Senior Designers” are always giving. In the Design World, folks who have already been there, done that, are spouting soundbite suggestions that sometimes are unproven, and we are going to put them to the test! We might succeed or we might fail, no harm no foul, it’s all a test! "
Comprised of Rubaie Jaffer, Mike Burpoe, Steven Overtrurf, and Narek Mughnetsyan, the Test Pilots were brought together by the DGDC, in hopes of expanding the diversity, opinions, and experience levels of the podcast. We gave them the mission to come up with a show concept they can really get immersed in, hoping to help younger creatives navigate through their design career paths. This idea of “testing” the advice from more senior designers really struck a chord with us. For the first episode, they challenged themselves to double their rates. Each designer explains their story, with updates and reactions. It’s super unique and unlike anything you’ve heard on a podcast before.
