Listen: Design Work's Kate Darby interviews independent UX designer Jenny Shen

Design Work is a new podcast hosted by New Zealand designer Kate Darby that interviews trailblazing creatives from all over the globe about how they design and how they embrace new modes of working. In the sixth episode, Darby interviews independent UX and product designer, Jenny Shen. Shen works remotely in Amsterdam and has worked with companies like IBM, Crate & Barrel and TravelBird. She also runs the Ladies that UX Amsterdam community, mentors other designers and speaks at conferences.  In this episode, she talks about what it’s like to be a remote designer, her favourite countries to work from, running a community, creating a mentor programme and digital douchebags.

One of Shen's case studies is pictured above. Check out more of her work on her website here.
