Posted by

Welcome to episode #836 of Six Pixels of Separation.

Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation – Episode #836 – Host: Mitch Joel. Ashish Goel has launched and run design divisions for multiple international companies. He is an entrepreneur, designer, former teaching fellow and a collaborator on the Stanford 2025 project. He is the former head of design at Zomato (India’s larger-scale Yelp!). He currently runs Boca, his sparkling water start-up, and advises some of India’s top technology companies on design and product management. His new book via the d.school, The Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford, is called Drawing on Courage – Risks Worth Taking and Stands Worth Making. Ashish believes that this topic is not-always-talked about, yet fundamental to doing cutting edge design work. According to Ashish, “You can do good-enough design-for-life work with its associated tools, but to do great design work you need grit.” His book is a practical, illustrated guide to overcoming the challenges of creative work, including where to start, how to give or get feedback, when to change direction, and how to stand up for what matters. Enjoy the conversation…
