RWC Symposium 2020

What is wrong with designers?


Gave a talk for a virtual symposium in Cassidy Williams' private Discord Server. This talk was semi-improvised and inspired by a conversation in there about the working relationship and communication challenges between developers and designers. This talk is a mirror to Gabor Javorszky's talk Why Developers Ignore Your Design.
