Doing things as a group is far more interesting to me than as an individual, whether that be work or play.
This is especially true in design. The best projects I’ve ever worked on involve a diverse team. Unique people coming together to solve problems. With the team involved in nearly every stage, projects gain velocity and excitement builds with the breakthroughs shared as they come in. The design team at Envato work in the following fashion:
We rarely sit at our desks. Design facilitation is our new role. We collaborate in the open to facilitate the design of the product. The results can only be realized once the design is part of the product and in the hands of the customer—we can’t do this alone (ref).
Maybe it’s time to be a bit more open with your team.
Thank you for supporting this issue.
