If you ever feel lost in the sea of articles from design authorities or design teams, not knowing exactly whose process is the right one or what to make of all those terms they use––know that we’re all figuring out stuff as we go. We just haven’t been able to create a consistent way to talk about our work. The language and process you learn in one company will have to be unlearned when you switch jobs (so you can learn the new, more streamlined one). Have you noticed that when you get interviewed for a design position, one of the requests we always make is that you “describe the design process at your previous company”? That’s because we want to see what can we copy and apply to our own process.
