I was so stoked to get Cennydd on the show. As a former designer myself Cennydd was always someone I looked up to. Not just because of his design chops, but also because he always came across as a very principled designer.
When I looked him up recently in researching guests for the show I was therefore thrilled to see that he’d completely shifted focus to evangelising ethical and future design.
My conversation with him did not disappoint.
On the practical level we cover some specific approaches to how designers can do their job better from a climate point of view. But we also discuss how these topics can lead to personal burnout and down periods and how to deal with them.
