    Stop Saying It Depends

    Stop Saying It Depends

    The right answer to every question does in fact depend on the context. But answering every question with "It depends" makes designers seem spineless, undermining others' confidence in our ability, judgment, and leadership. In this episode, Roman and Larry offer practical suggestions for building decisiveness and eliminating "It depends" from your vocabulary.

    When Should You Override Your Direct’s Design?

    When Should You Override Your Direct’s Design?

    Designers should be given the freedom to make the best design they can without the fear of their designs getting changed for arbitrary reasons. This is a tricky scenario because design leaders have to believe in the designs their team produces. In this episode, we discuss finding a balance between trusting your designers and leading them in a positive direction.

    Also, Larry got a puppy and is definitely not dead.

GetPennyStrong ,

Awesomeness!

I enjoy listening to these two. I like the way they are able to share about UX design in a way I can understand. Plus, I like their little diddly in the beginning.
