Design –– it’s much more than a pastime, a creative outlet, or an ability to pair complementary colors. Rather, it’s a way for people like Jack Morgan to shed light on an issues impacting millions of people.
Jack has been designing to help educational platforms find a voice and solve large-scale problems for nearly 10 years. Formerly the design lead for Google’s digital education division where he helped create the Google Academy London, Jack currently leads the design team at Duolingo, a language-learning website and app focused on making education free and accessible to all. His work at Duolingo has enabled him to help more than 300 million people learn a new language. It also inspired Jack to produce a short documentary about the impact of language on the lives of four Syrian refugees.
In this episode of The Success Lab Podcast, Jack talks about how his upbringing in East London influenced his career path, how his purpose as a designer and entrepreneur has evolved over the years, and how the Japanese idiom "ichi-go ichi-e" impacts his life –– personally and professionally.
