Designers can sell too 🤑 #83
By Ross Chapman • Issue #83 • View online
It’s been a while since I sent my first proposal for a design project. Luckily, times have changed and instead of proposing how to do the work, we can start DOING the work in a Requirements Workshop. They look something like this.
Proposals feel like procrastination. It’s busy-work, “a way to avoid making hard decisions” - a quote I ripped from Jonathan Courtney.
So designers - you can sell too - in the form of workshops. There is no set method of engaging with clients so why not design that as well?
Thank you for supporting this issue.
