A List Apart: Articles: Becoming Better Communicators

21 November 2012

As designers, we pride ourselves on being great communicators. We go to extreme lengths to communicate with users in a language they understand, enabling them to engage with our messages and feel like they’re part of a story we built just for them. Yet, we do a poor job of communicating with those whom our work requires us to talk to every day—and we need to, and can, get better at it.

That's the second post that I've saved today about communicating and getting better at it. As an industry I really believe that we need to be excellent communicators. For design to truly make a difference and fulfil its potential as an agent for change. Collectively we need to work hard to communicate with the non-designers we work with.
