Everyone has their own ways of working. Their own tools and techniques. I'm always growing and learning, but these are some of the things I've picked up along the way.
🧠 Understanding the problem
Anyone can design. The thing that makes the difference is being able to design something that solves a known problem.
Learning as much as I can about the problems we're trying to solve makes the design journey smoother, and the outcomes a lot better.
“If I had an hour to solve a problem I'd spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions.”
