    Hey Tobin

    I think this is a very reasonable set of skills to ask for.

    Although I can't tell you if its the right set of skills for your team, without knowing what their strengths are, but if you are only going to have one designer for a while, then these are probably the best things to focus on.

    In fact I feel I would be a pretty good fit for this role and I'm currently looking for jobs, are you open to remote working? as I'm in Brighton and Leeds would be quite a commute :-)

    Ok, actually this can't be real. They had me though.

    I understand. it's a great post. think it serves that purpose really well.

    Didn't mean to use it as an excuse to air my personal issues :-)

    Tell me about it. As a generalist designer myself, with 10+ years experience.

    It sadly still feels natural for me to be a generalist though. I don't think i'll ever be an expert.

    Great article, glad that you applied the same level of honesty to every archetype :-)

    What about The Generalist though?

    Those of us who have never managed to settle on a particular area of design.

    I suppose we're best suited as product managers, but that role has never appealed to me.

    I'm sorry. But I'm really not sure what your trying to say here.

    Whilst its true many decisions will have to start out as a guess or hypothesis before they are tested, these guesses still need to be based on something other than "because I like it".

    Even small, seemingly cosmetic decisions like colours and type choices can be based on what you know about your users.

  • Posted to What's your process before starting a project?, Jan 11, 2017

    Others have mentioned research and discovery but I would consider that to be the first thing I do after starting a project not before it.

    And opening up sketch is generally one of the very last steps in a project.
