Episode 5 | Mike Harris of Dondé

 In this episode of By Subject, host Peter Stevenson (Partner at modern8 + a8ency) and co-host Alysha Smith (Managing Partner and Creative Director at modern8) interview Mike Harris (Head of Design at Dónde) about his journey in design and how being deliberate in learning and practicing multiple different types of design has led him to be able to tackle the various challenges of designing at a startup.


Mike Harris believes he is where all roads were destined to lead. What was a balancing act maintaining his academic and art scholarships at the University of Utah with a college job throwing bags for Delta Airlines developed in dual passions for design and travel.

After ten years of branding, illustration, motion graphics, UX/UI design, and creative direction at various Salt Lake agencies, these delights finally married in his role as Head of Design at Dónde, a travel fintech startup based in Utah.
