Awesome. Thanks for your answers, Aarron!
Thanks for your insight Aarron, I really appreciate it! I agree that clear communication is important when presenting work, and focusing the conversation on what problems we'd be solving is a really good tip. Have you had experience working in a team where its members disagree with which problems are most important to solve? What would you recommend to a team to establish a workflow so that everyone is on the same page?
On a slightly different topic, do you have any thoughts on presenting to a client X number of concepts vs. a more constant collaboration with them in coming up with one concept (that can have multiple iterations)? Do you feel one method is better/more recommended than the other?
What's your best advice on finding the right people to work with, not just from a hiring standpoint, but also from a job hunter's standpoint? How can we find out if we're the right fit (especially during the interview process, where both the recruiting company and the candidate are highlighting only their good points)?
As a young designer, I often find myself in conflicting stances with my team, who are older and more experienced. I promise I don't try to be rebellious, but sometimes I feel huge resistance from the team when I want to try something new, or when I want to approach a design problem in a different way. Most of the time, I get the response "don't overthink it" and "we don't have time" as well as "that's just how it is." What would be the appropriate next steps? How do I know when to back down and when to push back?
