Designers and creatives are only as good as the team they are surrounded by. If a talented designer has to spend 80% of their time teaching others or constantly explaining every decision in a rational way to stakeholders — they might not be such a talented creative in a few years. Their craft deteriorates.
…clients that have very little experience with design in a fast-paced and multi-tasking environment. We are creating environments that deteriorates a creative’s skills when we should be enhancing the practice of critical problem solving, combined with imagination and elegant execution through design, implementation and testing. Our expectations should be pushed to want more, however we often settle at “this is good enough”.
