Yo! Podcast #012 – The Couldwells

Meagan and Andrew Couldwell are a designer/developer couple currently based in Los Angeles, California. Together they published the book ‘Laying The Foundations’, a comprehensive guide to understanding and implementing Design Systems. We have such a fun chat discussing book publishing, working with newborn twins, design inspiration from Disney, crafting color schemes, what makes a good boss, and even squeeze in a couples quiz right at the end:)
