Discuss Design Without Losing Your Mind

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Getting feedback from clients, teams, and stakeholders can be terrifying. We’ve all had our designs berated during painful meetings that result in nothing actionable or useful.
Well wipe your brow, because critiques—and the language for discussing design—are an important part of our growth as designers. After all, progress comes from understanding why something is the way it is, then examining how it meets or doesn’t meet desired goals. By understanding what critique is and how it relates to the "feedback" we so often ask for aids all team members, not just designers in becoming better communicators and collaborators.
So if overcoming an endless barrage of opinions has thwarted your design progress in the past, then this talk is a must-attend. Get the techniques to make critique a positive experience for everyone involved.
