  • This talk is not about design: I am not going to talk about how to be a designer, design patterns or philosophies. It’s about people.
  • Compliment each other perfectly. Power + value of the relation ship is unique!We make a great team.
  • We are like Yin + YangTogether we make “Practical Magic”A working prototype or software is essential for design. Wireframes + comps are nothing without a working test. We can fail smartly together before it reaches users.
  • Engineers help define boundariesWhich are a great ingredient for UXFrom constraints the most innovative solutions occur
  • We are makers, builders, doersUnited we are more flexible and ready for changeWe are faster problem solvers togetherWe make iterative solutionsAll in all : we cut through all the BS
  • These four things make us a great UXBoth design and engineering together create thisNot one alone
  • We are closest to the productWe have the most influence over what get’s shippedDon’t loose sight of this! Gain confidence from it, a sense of ownership, purpose and control.
  • Guild relationships, as a team and individuallyThe powers of teams are amazing
  • Purpose drives teamsInspiration fuels teammatesKeep the momentum going by inspiring your teammatesInspiration may evolveYou have a say in crafting what the teams common goal is!
  • Look at problems togetherFind a common language to speakBe flexible, ready for changeNo such thing a perfect, ever!
  • Transparency + dialogue make people feel a part of it allSilloued decisions lead to repeat work + tension on the teamDesign + engineering together have a more powerful voice than alone
  • Everyone participates in the decision Feel empowered to speak up Disagreement is healthy and productiveAsk a lot of questions!
  • Powerful team respect dynamic rolesHolistic design and development come from many voices and talentsKnow what you’re good at and learn more!
  • Don’t settle for being at the bottom of the funnel, We are the owners, know it, feel itWe work for our users
  • A team is only as good as the sum of its partsCelebrate individual talents and successesEveryone on the team matters
  • In summary, UX loves engineeringTogether we are able to build, iterate, evolve, grow …and get shit done that no one else can.OPEN FOR DIAOLOGUE
