This is a post I wrote for UX Booth.
It’s not easy to talk about design. Every designer has had to justify their decisions to a stakeholder, yet most lack the ability to convince people they’re right. The ability to effectively articulate design decisions is critical to the success of a project, because the most articulate person usually wins. In fact, the difference between a good designer and a great designer is in their ability to not only solve problems with design, but to also articulate how their solution solves it in a way that’s compelling and fosters agreement.
