Learning how to defend design decisions is a critical skill. It’s not enough just to show what you did, you also have to explain why you did it.

​As designers, we’ve all be confronted with situations in which defending design decisions felt like an impossible task.

​Maybe stakeholders think your designs aren’t intuitive.

​Or maybe they ask you to add something that makes the composition feel unbalanced.

​Learn how to effectively defend design decisions and become a better designer. Clearly communicate or die tryin’!
