Pencils Down: Stop Designing & Start Developing

by Aaron Hursman

Published June 5, 2012 in Design

Designers can’t help themselves. We are, by nature, perfectionists. We create, then throw away. We create again, tweak continuously, and fine-tune a design indefinitely. Why can we not stop ourselves? Time passes us by, missing deadlines. In turn, developers anxiously wait for us to finish, so that they can work off of something that has been solidified. During this session, you will learn strategies that will push your design to that "good enough" stage, so you will know “when to say when” and move from designing interfaces to developing them.
