The naming is great! :D also I definitely connected with the main topic. What gets shipped never looks like what I envisioned - there is always some technical constraint or a use case that I didn‘t consider which changes things up. Then there‘s the desin -> dev handoff which is never a lossy transformation.
also, you guys breifly touched on “timeless design” which I haven‘t really thought too much about but I think I tend to not strive for that very much. Most of the time I’m just trying to solve a problem that currently exists and not think too much about a hypothetical one that might exist in the future.
I agree with you Kevin information loss in that hand off process is usually pretty rough. The only time I have ever seen a handoff where it doesn't happen that way is when Design and Dev are working really closes on the solution through out the whole process. (Research, Design, Implementation) So both parties have full ownership over the original idea. The problem is that it rarely happens where I work. But when it does it's magical.
Just saw this! (Still struggling with Spectrum notifications 😅) I think you're right Alex. The only way to not loose stuff in the handoff is to avoid it alltogether. Working together from beginning to end has always produced better results in my experience
Hey guys, loving the show and new systematic structure of it!! Adding to the discussion of not feeling like a design is ever 'perfect', I relate to this very heavily. I feel more comfortable knowing that a seemlingly 'last' iteration doesn't really exist. Depending on the setting, especially in agencies, it feels as if your latest iteration has to align with the some ambigious 'perfect non-existent last iteration' that needs to be shipped. Extending on IDEO's Circular Design (https://www.circulardesignguide.com)—if you think of product design in a circular and iterable sense, it starts to feel more logical that there will always be room to expand. Your mind can constantly think one step ahead and plan for the next iteration of a product, but there will always be room to iterate further!
