In an effort to clear out my tabs (and share more!), here are some things I’ve been reading, listening to, and watching recently.
Resilient Management, Lara Hogan. This book is a quick read full of actionable advice, prompts for self reflection, and tons of reference material to dive deeper.
🆒 Design links
The BuzzFeed Product Design Highlight Reel. Shameless plug! I wrote about all the great things the Product Design team has shipped this year.
Drop caps & design systems, Ethan Marcotte.
1% Better, Robin Rendle. I love this quick read because it reminds me of what I’ve been telling the Design team at BuzzFeed for the last few months: if what you’re doing makes our products better tomorrow than they were yesterday (if even by a small amount), you’re on the right track.
Fixing Your Work Environment Will Not Fix Your Life, Megan Greenwell.
Root of Evil: The True Story of the Hodel Family and the Black Dahlia. Content warning for stories of sexual assault, incest, and physical abuse.
Two of my favorite recent quizzes on BuzzFeed: How Far Can You Make It Through This "Sk8er Boi" Lyrics Quiz? and If You Still Remember All The Lyrics To "Super Bass" I'll Be Seriously Impressed
