Embracing Practice in Product Design
The art of practicing is the act to improve or maintain one’s proficiency in an idea, belief, or method. User experience designers have hundreds of methods, and practices that they must pull from to perform in their day to day. In this episode, I’ll discuss the benefits of embracing rituals and developing habits to treat practicing like its an essential part of being a designer.
