Eric Kim, VP of Design and co-founder at Modo Labs, talks to MEX founder Marek Pawlowski about the challenges of growing a design team within a mobile UX-focused start-up. The conversation roams from Eric’s early interest in architecture and how things work, then into graphic design and on to working with early web technologies. The discussion turns to Eric’s role as a co-founder with a design background and how this has played an important part in shaping the culture of the company.
