What to Bring:
Pencil, Pen, Paper.
Many designers are perfectionists, who try to make their designs “pixel perfect” before showing it to anyone. They understand that design is in the details, but they get lost in the littlest pixel imaginable. They take days or weeks before showing their latest work to their Product Manager.
The preoccupation of being a perfect designer and coworker can leave them angry, overwhelmed, and depressed. Plus, perfectionism can lead to procrastination. The designer must think and re-think a potential idea over and over before producing any work. In their mind, the idea must be perfect before the execution can begin.
In this workshop, designers will learn from a recovering perfectionist and teacher on how to manage their inner perfectionist. J. Schuh and Brian Sullivan will explain five strategies for dealing with perfectionists for other team members. Lastly, perfectionists will have proven ways to help them achieve a better work-life balance.
