Product Orientation Requires Technical Excellence

Johanna Rothman

However, if you want to develop a product orientation, you’ll need to consider the future.

How to Set Metrics for Design

Amplitude

The hardest part of a designer’s job is evangelizing the impact of your design. Often times, it’s a matter of debate and something I like to call committee-jira-ticket-creation. Ultimately, these conversations are rooted in opinion and even you, the designer, will never truly be able to fully predict whether or not a design is “good/successful”. It is not my job to become a data scientist, but it is my job to uphold experience quality.
