“Design tools are not like football clubs. Just because you support one, doesn’t mean you can’t support the other. That mentality will stunt you in your journey. Use the right tool for the right job.”

“World is saturated with design prototyping tools, but we’re missing the production tools for the last 5%, which is like, 90% of the work.”

“You haven’t mastered a tool until you understand when it should not be used.”

DesignOpinions

“We don’t talk enough about how the majority of people who make UX decisions are not designers.”

DesignOpinions

“We really can’t say ‘that’s a great UX’ or ‘this is intuitive’ without asking first who it’s for and what problem it is supposed to solve.”

DesignOpinions

“The most satisfying thing in design is eyeballing the placement of the object, and later discovering it was perfectly placed.”

DesignTools

DesignOpinions

“It’s been tough to recruit product designers with great visual design and an eye for detail. Did we atomic-design-system and product-manager-skills a generation out of having them?”

DesignOpinions

“All designers really want is to have a say in… 1. designing the right thing 2. designing the thing right.”

DesignOpinions

“The west is still using QR codes totally wrong. A QR code on a restaurant table that opens the menu is not really what we want. A QR code can be unique to the table and allow food ordering directly to it. Should carry state and context.”

DesignOpinions

“The word ‘intuitive’, when applied to computer interfaces, should pretty much always be replaced with ‘familiar’ (‘to me’).”

DesignOpinions

“A design system doesn't need 300 people involved right out of the gate. Give a small, smart, and scrappy team the time, resources, and autonomy to get things properly set up. Things will grow over time, but start small.”

DesignOpinions

“The more we invest in UX research, the easier and better everything else gets when trying to deliver well-designed products and services. We burn so many wasted calories compensating for no or poor research.”

DesignOpinions

“All design debt is technical debt. All technical debt is design debt. There is no difference.”

DesignOpinions

“Trends fade. Fundamentals do not. I see so many designers that can design really pretty stuff, but when you break it down, it’s missing basic fundamentals and is an absolute mess. Work on fundamentals too y’all.”
