Work From Home
Every month we choose 3 Spotify designers and get on their wavelength. They get 3(ish) sentences to share their thoughts ranging from goings-on in design and tech, perspective on user experience challenges, to hot button topics for them right now.

It feels nice to scream-sing LA LA LALA LA LAAA once in a while (try also: DAA DADAADA DAA).
