To kick off 2018 we caught up with PJ Buddhari, a product designer currently working on the design systems team at Adobe. In this episode we dig into what it takes to put together a design system across such a huge lineup of products, moving to the US, PJ's path into design, and so much more.

Website link is broken! Or well, there's an added hyphen that was added that's causing it to lead to a 404 page :)

I 100% love the CSS I see happening around here. Especially into the icons on the player, the overlay blurs and share slideup, and the share icon set. Cool stuff, Bryn and Brian.

Also love the speed-up feature in the player being a dial (a la speedometer)

Love PJ’s portfolio, that minty green shade of serif makes me feel like I just brushed my teeth with biodegradable toothpaste.

WAIT - Just got to the part about the interactive yoga mat. I volunteer at a yoga studio and we were just joking about how funny that would be… we did skits about it lol. That must have been so cool!

Going to be on the same design systems team PJ is on this summer when I intern there. I don't like to brag because I don't consider much of anything I do to brag about but it's just surreal listening to this podcast 4 years ago during my senior of high school and now going to work with one of the guests on it. :)

I wanted to drop Brian, Bryn, PJ, and Sarah a line for putting together this particularly insightful episode! Thank you all so much as it has helped this Jr. designer to get their bearings and strategize a bit more effectively when it comes to informational interviews with those I look up to in the design community. Your efforts and the contents shared is much appreciated.
