Excellent points Todd.

Ah, I understand, Varun. Like you, I see great design as including a spectrum of talents from strategic to interaction to emotional (including graphic) design. I think what you are doing is very worthwhile, as the best graphic designers will understand something about interaction design, and the best interaction designers will understand something about strategic design. Hiring, training, and managing this “spectrum” of designers is, I think, one of a product manager’s most important jobs.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
