Friends! 🙌🤗 I’ve been invited to a podcast to talk about how to improve collaboration between #design and #development. So, I would love to hear your opinion, too! 🙏 What workflows, tools, and strategies did work well for you and your team to create better work together?

No one should have “That’s not my job” moments, respect and involve in each other areas. Bring them early in the design process. I share them quick mock-ups before the client for their opinion and also to know if I’m not making it harder for them than it needs.

@brian_lovin ✋🏼 I’ve been in that position twice. First time I was able to sell the idea of a DS but I had to own that project. As the only designer I just had 25% of my time for that and had to build it too.

The first company needed to ship faster and had a base product built so I designed in the browser, there’s actually no design file for that one 😳

I’m now in the same position as the only designer in an early stage startup. But now the process in this company is different. A lot of mock-ups help so I’m building it first in Figma.

I was heavily inspired of the top DS and the bright people behind it. Still pretty proud of the work and result. design.rtshawkeye.com

It's you, a designer working at a startup. The design debt is accumulating, but you have to Move Fast and Ship Things. You know you need a design system, but it's not clear where to start, or even where to find the time to start paying back the debt. Who has been here and won?

Does all clubhouse rooms just talk about how great, breakthrough, etc etc clubhouse is? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

So even in design rooms they’re talking about the design of clubhouse 🙄 Haven’t found something worth staying. At least in podcasts you can fast forward the bits you’re not interested.

🎉 The first episode of my new podcast, Design Spotlight, is out now! I sit down with @ryngonzalez to discuss design infrastructure teams and the challenges with growing a team that can design systems across many diverse platforms. https://t.co/8dkB8REQA7

I couldn’t find you in overcast, is it going to be Spotify only?

@dvassallo When my kids were very young, I connected work with “helping people” So now when I leave, they know I’m going to help people, they view it as a positive, and they talk often about wanting to go work to help people. It’s not perfect, but it has made a big difference.

This is a great explanation, for sure I’ll try it with mine that are still too young to ask…

Today @wdavidmarx and I did a breezy ~30km walk into Tokyo and this fire department training in a random residential ‘hood was just maximally spontaneous and beautiful and bizarre: https://t.co/GABCdflHOv

Tokyo is such a great city to walk around. I want to go back so much. Hopefully soon after things get better.

“If you feel that you just can’t write or you’re too tired or this, that, and the other, just stop thinking about it, and go and work. Life doesn’t have to be so overthought. You don’t have to wait to be inspired. Just start working.” – @JoyceCarolOates

‪Love it, it reminded me of the turning pro quotes from @SPressfield The war of art book.‬ ‪“The amateur believes she must first overcome her fear to do her work. The professional knows that fear can never be overcome. She shows up no matter what and do the work”‬
