Ego has no place in the design process. Fail quickly to succeed quickly. Negative feedback is a gift. Universal and accessible design is ethical design. Designers are toolmakers. Meet people where they are. Be a facilitator. Define the problem. Play. There's always more than one solution. Empathy is the key to resonance. You are not your user.
Tackling complex problems. Building consensus and momentum towards a shared vision. Empowering non-designers to provide confident, actionable feedback. Advocating for users. Writing code. Creating comprehensive Figma component systems.
