From A to Zahra, Episode 4: D is for Design and Diversity



D is for design and diversity, two important concepts when it comes to content. How you present your content visually can have a great impact on how that content is received by an audience, while bad design can take away from valuable content.

In this episode, we talk to one of our designers, Yume Sato (seen below hard at work), about the importance of both design and diversity when it comes to content, the workplace and life in general.
