Check out our first Designlab mentor Ask Me Anything (AMA) session on Instagram Live! Watch the video here (skip to 3:40 to start).
During this AMA we hear from Paul Kim, a Product Designer at Dropbox based in Austin, TX. Like many Designlab students, Paul doesn't come from a traditional design background, having made the transition from chemistry and biomedical engineering.
He has since worked as a product manager, designer, and data analyst at various points in his career, solving problems within e-commerce (RetailMeNot), HR tech (Indeed), and entertainment (Live Nation).
Paul knows that no two paths to design are the same. “That is one of the things that always excites me about Designlab is helping facilitate that journey with students where they are, and with the goals they have in mind,” Paul says.
Outside of Designlab, Paul partners with local institutions in Austin to create avenues for new design talent.
