There is always a little magic behind every great design.  On this episode of the Design Mind frogcast, we’re joined by Dave Lankford, VP of Product for Global Consumer Engagement at Disney Streaming (Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+ and Star+) to talk about what it means to design products that tell stories. Designing streaming platforms for a brand with as large a footprint as Disney is no small feat, but luckily Dave and his global team are well-prepared for the task. At Disney Streaming, human empathy and machine intelligence play a critical role in the mission of storytelling. Dave discusses the importance of empowering creative, collaborative teams, how the improvisation technique “Yes, and” leads to innovative ideas, and what it takes to connect users with stories across vastly different regions, cultures and languages.Brought to you by frog, a global creative consultancy. frog is part of Capgemini Invent.

Leanne shares how unifying around a brand's purpose and shaping creative teams to deliver at scale is essential for delivering on customer and employee experiences.

When it comes to making things for real people in the real world, intentions matter. Whether it's taking the proper time to deeply understand the challenge you're trying to solve, scoping a diverse team that better reflects your customer and community, or asking the hard questions about a design's potential impact, the meaning we infuse into what we make is as important as the final product. frog Design Director Alexis Puchek joins us to explain the importance of leading with intentionality throughout the entire process—and the consequences of failing to do so.Brought to you by frog, a design and strategy consultancy. frog is part of Capgemini Invent.
