168: Jacklyn Laryea

Episode Summary

We're closing out the month out with a conversation with Facebook product designer Jacklyn Laryea. Jacklyn's relatively new at Facebook, but her background includes work at PBS, The Atlantic, and AOL. Although we started off talking about what Jacklyn does at Facebook, we ended up discussing a lot of different topics, including how Jacklyn's Ghanaian roots influence her work, what she wants to see from the design community, and her advice for up and coming designers. But the interview's not all serious -- we end up having a few laughs too!
