Get feedback early and often
As a designer, one can become attached to a particular design or screen without seeking feedback. It’s amazing how a person’s feedback may push your design in a completely different direction.
Having an open and collaborative environment with teammates plays a huge role, as I learned that listening to feedback objectively improved my design decisions. Conversely, I learned to provide actionable constructive feedback. When there was a major issue, we had a group meeting to identify and solve the issue.
Don’t be afraid of the Unknown
I have learned not to allow the unknown deter me from taking on something new. Being forced to learn a new program like Flinto proved invaluable. It gave me the opportunity to overcome my fear of my inability to learn and adapt to a new program. It showed I must always be ready to step outside my comfort zone and diversify my skillset to accomplish a project.
