The pitfall of weekly or bi-weekly design reviews is that designers may assume those meetings are the only times they should be sharing their work, causing them to be radio silent the rest of the week.
I’ve found being open and vocal with my teammates helps us understand how we can support one another, prevents us from unnecessary work overlap and contributes to a culture of trust.
Having regular design meetings is not only critical in ensuring open communication, but also to share progress and confirm everyone is on track to meet project goals.
Adaptability and flexibility also come into play when balancing client and internal feedback. A large part of design is about problem solving and presentation
how can I use my design expertise to show the client my design is the best solution for the problem at hand?
No smart person will write me off as being dumb if I’m asking a question for the benefit of the team.
