Effective design communication within a team is just as important as the product - here's the UI style guide I created for the developers to utilize.
- Having said that, there is always something new you can uncover. Initially, I felt that the meetings seemed to go in circles and there was not a clear path - many things were still unsaid and left up for assumption. However, I learned that this iterative process enables us to uncover new questions and hidden problems overlooked before.
-The visual design may be similar to what we started with in the beginning, but what is different and makes the impact is how the design has become finessed and refined to the user.
-There is an importance in working with developers so we do not have to "reinvent the wheel" and design anything in libraries already.
-Designing to help improve the lives of other individuals is the most fun and rewarding process in the world to me.
