Episode 48 Show Notes:

I've talked a lot on the podcast about how crucial it is to become a multitalented UXer to stand out amongst the competition. A way to do that is to have T-shaped skills.

T-shaped skills mean having deep expertise in one particular area but also broad experience across the field.

As an engineer turned designer, Donald Burlock shares in this episode the skills he's gained over the years that help organizations understand the value of the design process.
