Hey everybody!
Ross here from Etch Sprints, a design sprint and training team within Etch Group. I’m sharing this, the first of a weekly insights email combining some of our best content and the best of what we’ve seen on the web to better help you love what you do. 
We’ll cover tips on how to be happy at work, how others are using tools like the design sprint to experiment with new products and features and the business of design - how can design be taken way more seriously in business (and the tactics on getting there)?
Tweet me feedback on how you think this newsletter can be most interesting for you @etchsprints.
