Inspiration. Interviews. Tools. Career Advice. The Best Design Jobs.

Hey everyone, 
Hope you all had a great weekend, I spent mine putting this issue together, have to say I’m really enjoying researching the best things to share with you. Doing this also forces me to be more organised which is really great 😀
Last week I promised an interview with a junior UX'er but unfortunately just didn’t have enough time to finish it and put it all together. Instead I’m sharing an interview I did a while ago with Lynsey Thornton, the VP of UX @ Shopify. There are some great insights on building UX teams and what makes a great researcher, really hope you enjoy it. 
I’ve also started a new section “Real Talk” - I thought it might be helpful to ask designers around the world for one piece of advice, this week the awesome Charlie Deets, product designer @ Whatsapp, got back to my very opportunistic DM on Twitter. I really loved what he had to say. 
That’s it for now, I’m working on a couple more interviews this week, one with Marek Dlugos who recently impressed a lot of designers with his pitch to become an intern @ Intercom. It didn’t work out but it will be interesting to hear his story. 
Love Uncovr.Design? I’d love it if you shared this on TwitterFacebook or Linkedin, your support really means a lot ❤️
Thank you,

Real Talk 👇
One thing that isn’t the most intuitive part of learning, is that it is just downright painful. When you are learning a new skill you just fail over and over and over and it feels terrible. If you can let go of your ego and goals and evaluate those moments for what they really are, you eventually accept that failures are growth. Once you truly realise that, it becomes weirdly addictive and it’s almost fun to fail.
