We made it! Another milestone in the Design Details archive: episode 250 🎉
For this special episode we hosted a live show with our friends May-Li Khoe, Katie Dill, and Soleio Cuervo. In the conversation we dig into hiring junior designers, how to identify talent, equity and salary negotiations, building a career rubric, and so much more. Also, a huge thank you to Combine for hosting us in their beautiful new space!
To everyone who's joined us on this 250 episode marathon: thank you! Whether this is your first or 250th episode listening in, we appreciate your support and feedback; thank you! We also want to announce - to avoid too big of a surprise - that after episode 256 Bryn will be stepping away from the show. We'll have more updates on Twitter in the coming weeks if you'd like to stay posted.
Now, on to the show notes!

This is also meant for Brian and Sarah, but: thanks so much for putting out such a consistently great show. I know it takes a ton of work to make something like this happen 250 times. It has been a big part of helping me find excitement and joy in design at times when it has felt like a bit of a slog and when I haven't been sure on the next steps to take. It has given me lots of chunks of wisdom that have helped me grow as a professional and as a person. And, more simply, it has also just been entertaining.
Congrats on episode 250 and sad to see you go, @bryn!! Sad that you won't be on the pod anymore but I know this will lead to awesome things to come on Spectrum so I can't wait for that (and the subsequent episodes discussing Spectrum, hint hint).
