Some time ago we came up with the article listing the best Ruby on Rails podcasts. Programmers, including those working in other languages, may find it interesting. Now it’s time for a more creative subject. In this article we present the top 10 podcasts for everyone interested in digital design.
As we all know, a designer’s job is all about being creative. In this line of work no one can give you an instant solution because each problem needs an individual approach. In addition to that the solution needs to be crafted perfectly to suit a selected concept. - Whaat? - You may ask. But yes, that’s the sad truth. Creative approach is always helpful, but what can you do in order to stay creative and don’t run out of ideas? My solution is very simple - listen to podcasts.
The shows which I’ve selected will give you a powerful dose of condensed knowledge which can make a huge impact on your skillset. Enough to allow you to polish your soft skills, which in our work are also very important. Each podcast is different but related to UI design, UX, animation and the problem of how to deal with emergencies when working on a project. On the list you will also find some shows regarding the process of bringing design to life. Their authors discuss how design works and how developers deal with the projects designers make.
Ok, let’s cut to the chase, here’s a compilation of the best podcasts. The order is random, not based on quality.. Enjoy!
From a designer’s perspective, sometimes it’s good to know what is going under the “hood” (and we’re not talking here about backend side). That’s why I also recommend the podcasts listed below. They reach beyond the problem of design. Here you’ll also learn about frontend development and user experience. Get valuable insight into the problems of design, related to how users interpret and experience your projects.
I hope you find my list helpful and that the podcasts I listed above will turn out to be very inspiring. If you have any other web-design related podcasts to recommend, please share them with us in the comments below!
