Gerren Lamson is an Austin-based designer and the co-owner and Chief Design Officer at Creative Market. In this episode, we explore how Gerren got started in design, the value in teaching yourself new skills, the differences in working agency vs. product, and how to transition from making to managing. Dan and Gerren also chat about what Creative Market and Dribbble have in common, community and company culture, and his team’s newest product, Creative Market Pro.
“Design and creativity, but design, in particular, has been continually decentralized and democratized and more and more people are being brought into the fold at a certain level of design thinking and execution, even if it’s not their formal day job. We’re having to look at that and find those people to talk to, to see how we can help them and serve their needs too, and it’s really exciting to be a part of that whole movement.”
