About

This is an email series offering a behind-the-scenes look at what it's really like leading design for a startup.

question 01

What startup is this for?

This series revolves around Maven. We're building a platform for cohort-based courses (CBCs) and I joined as the founding designer.

question 02

Who is behind this?

People call me Ridd 👋

I’m also a design advisor at Shift Nudge and the creator of Figma Academy. Over the last decade I've realized that design is so much more than what I do professionally. It's also my idea of an epic Saturday night and nothing brings me to life like teaching what I learn throughout my journey.

question 03

Why are you doing this?

1) I'm fascinated by the benefits of designing in public and am committed to documenting my journey.

2) My vision is for this series to shed some light on what the day-to-day of a product designer really looks like.

3) I'll also share some practical lessons that I learn along the way. The more I share/teach the more I learn. So I'm all in 😁
