Being a Designer in Silicon Valley: Fly Solo or Join a Start-Up?

In this edition of our KPCB podcast series, KPCB design partner John Maeda and KPCB Recruiting Partner Jackie Xu talk with Alex Cornell, freelance designer, co-founder, and creative director at Firespotter Labs. They dive into the question of whether it is better for designers in Silicon Valley to work independently or join start-ups – and whether there is a golden middle way that allows designers to reap the benefits of both paths.
