By nature, I am a solitary being. I enjoy time alone, tinkering, experimenting, and playing with ideas. Early in my user experience career, I was drawn to solitary pursuits - coding, graphics production, site maps and content inventories.
As I have progressed in my career, working alone no longer seems like a viable, let alone desireable option. From strategy development with clients, to design work with teams, to participatory design with users, working with others skillfully is critical to the success of any complex design project.
This blog is about navigating the world of collaboration. through methods, tools, techniques and ideas. I’ll share both my experience working with teams, clients, and users, methods and tools I’ve tried, resources I come across, and inspiration to help you do your best work.
