Lets face the reality a larger number of designers across globe are here to support Product & development cycles. Our question in general are there any particular common parameter for measuring design or designers success???Listen it here

how is designs success being measured

How many hours you work ?

Clocking * — 9 hours a day have already turned old school and productivity and time spent doesn't have to be proportional

Process of Coming up with design matters and not number of hours you work

You cant clock for 8 or 9 hours and say your design is done for the day

Quality of work ?

No Design is final design

The way designers and developers work is completely different and its not something which can be compared with a end quality. Developers quality depends on the code he writes which is to an extent evaluated internally

Number of Screens or iterations

Designers need to be in touch with all the teams Marketing , Sales, Product teams and Developers to deliver a seamless experience and not just iterations

Don’t measure your success in terms of screens or on time deliverables, Measure in terms of User or Customer Satisfaction rates
