The Madness of Our Methods

Koan #17

Tell me about your design process.

That seems to be a question, or rather a prompt, encountered in every UX interview. I’ve asked it and have been asked it many times.

I stopped asking it years ago because it lacks substance. It’s a lobbed ball that barely makes it over home plate. It has no teeth and doesn’t tell me anything about a candidate.

Design Koans is a weekly publication of short articles designed to provoke deeper thought on design issues and perhaps even wake you up.
