Brian, Joost, and Tom are whole again with Tom’s return. Ready to talk about a serious topic, design ethics, they dive right in. What are ethics in regard to design and how does one operate on the right side? Can affordable and sustainable go together? How can we change from an either/or way of working to combining seemingly opposing values in the design process? We talk about that, and more, in this Shots of Purpose episode.

Have you experienced tough ethical moments in your career? We’d love to hear your story! Share it with us on Twitter, or reach out to us personally.

In this episode, Brian and Joost talk about what skills make a good designer. Do you need to be stubborn? Maybe. What about curious? Definitely. Hop on our Double Decker Analogy bus and find out what we think separates the average from the good in this episode of Shots of Purpose.
