Really great article, Ann! It makes me think of Temple Grandin and the way she thinks in picture to solve problems. If you haven’t already, highly recommend watching the movie about her for inspiration in this space!
Thanks for such a thoughtful response, Fairy! Before joining Microsoft and doing this project, I too didn’t know how to appreciate the context of work created before me. Understanding that has made me a much more effective designer and I’m sure it will for you too :) Cheers!
Thanks for reading the article, Mateus! Organizationally, the company has become a lot more user-centric + design focused over the years, for sure. I’m glad you can see the impact of that coming through in the products :)
Thanks for reading, Nicolas, and great observations. Understanding the context of past decisions is essential for pushing new, innovative ideas forward. In that vein, I can’t really comment on the inconsistencies between UWP apps, Edge, and the OS but I do imagine that someone is thinking about them :)
