Vincent Wanga, Sam Bays and Kasey Randall are all designers who aren’t originally from D.C.

In the latest season 2 episode of DC Tech Stories, the podcast featuring conversations with local technologists, “The Three Musketeers of Design” talk to host Jessica Bell about finding their place in D.C. and the tech community. Plus, they offer the tale of they met. Bays and Wanga work together at Spoke, while Wanga and Randall started the District Creatives meetupof which Bays is a member.

Here are Bell’s thoughts on the episode:

So I was a bit nervous going into this interview – I don’t know that much about design!  One of my good friends called me out on not including designers as a part of the “tech” scene – and she’s right.  Programmers are only one part of creating amazing websites and applications – designers help us to make USABLE products and often bring in the more human aspect of what we are building.  When these three guys reached out to me I was curious – not only about what designers think about their field, but about how to balance your friendships within your professional sphere. Plus group episodes with friends make for fun listening (a lesson I learned with my episode with Black Code Collective)
