008: The Podcast Designer


The Podcast Designer

James Cabrera

I interviewed James Cabrera, a self-taught User-Centered Visual Designer formally educated in Math and Physics. He is currently the Design Director at Gimlet Media, having previously held design roles at Refinery29, Say Media, and Foot Locker, Inc. He has also given talks at various design conferences across the world.

We talked about turning a side gig into a full time job, how he started out designing templates, negotiating design offers, marrying UX and business goals, and a lot more.
