    You should try harder ;)

    Jokes aside, DN can be quite the time-sink if you let it.

    Whoa, this is exactly the book I needed right now. Thanks!

    I think options are good during research and when you want to define a design direction for the project. This phase should involve the client somehow and showing rough concepts for each direction can avoid unpleasant surprises down the road.

    Showing options for finalised work, however, seems pointless to me:

    • If you're showing three different directions of high-fidelity finalised work, you've wasted time going off-brief on two of them. If your client is asking for three finalised versions, you're doing three projects and being paid for one.

    • If you're showing three slightly different versions of the same work, you're handing execution decisions to your client (who generally has no clue on how to execute design details).

    It's one thing for the client to ask for small adjustments — sometimes they give good suggestions and you're able to incorporate their feedbacks — but don't hand over your responsibilities on a plate and then complain they screwed up the job.

    Present your work and defend why and how you reach a solution that suits your clients needs. I'm not saying this is always easy (clients can be tough), but it's the approach I try to follow.

    Also, I'm referring to presenting final work to clients. When you're showing research/ideation to clients or other designers, it makes total sense to explore different directions.

    Nice work! The project grid works fine, but I would like to have a title or some text indicating what the projects are about to help me decide which one I should look at first.

    I asked Layervault back then if they were still using it and why: https://www.designernews.co/stories/25957-ask-layervault-what-about-progressive-reduction

    Agree with César.

    For the sake of transparence and not looking arbitrary, it would be good if a sinked post clearly showed in the top when and why it was sinked.

    It would also help the community avoid posting similar content in the future.

    Not equipped (or inclined) to have this kind of discussion here.

    You still fail to convince me that people in disadvantage should wait for better, non-marxist solutions while they are being objectively harmed by hiring discrimination.

    Everyone is free to hold whatever opinions they want, but when someone mocks the suffering of others in their speech... well, they are free to take their opinions elsewhere. DN is not the place for this.

    Are you a professional baseball player?

    Because that was a really long shot.
