Transcript

This episode is brought to you by Indeed Design, a resource for designers, researchers, and all UX professionals who do design work that matters.

John Maeda would rather be curious than afraid, despite the tectonic shifts in our world. AI—artificial intelligence—is reaching new milestones that foreshadow big changes in many careers. Some ignore what’s on the horizon, others acknowledge what’s to come but are paralyzed by fear. John Maeda takes a different approach: he just keeps reinventing himself.

John jumped from MIT where he was a professor deeply invested in technology to the Rhode Island School of Design where he shook up the traditional notions of creativity. He then went on to Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers where he brought design and venture capital closer together.

In this episode, John shares why he’s always starting over and reconsidering his assumptions and he lays out some of his principles for embracing career and life changes.
