  • Posted to How do designers collaborate with copywriters?, Oct 05, 2018

    I always believed that the copy was part of the solution to the problem you're trying to solve. That's why currently in my team, the designers are responsible of the interface AND the copy. I used to work with "product copywriters" and I always saw them as designers who use words instead of interface components. So they were there from day 1 on a project.

  • Posted to The differences between UX/UI Designer, Product Designer, Product Manager , Aug 22, 2018

    This is a never ending debate :) If you ask 100 designers, you'll get 100 different answers. Anyway, here's my take on that:

    • UI/UX Designers will create screens and flows to solve a given problem. Their solutions are usable, understandable and enjoyable.
    • Product Designers do that as well, and also make sure that we're building the right thing and trying to solve the right problem (considering user needs and business objectives). Their role is to save the engineering team as much time as they can. 90% of their work will never be released because it was just explorations meant to define the right path to follow.
    • Product Managers will coordinate, plan the release of those solutions and keep track of the success.

    I think there's a huge overlap on a senior product designer's role and a senior PM's role. I've seen some organizations without any PM, only senior designers.

    I wish they'll buy Layervault and create a version control with a conflict resolution system. Might be really powerful to use Sketch in a collaborative way.
