Things I learned as Designer in Tech

You are a problem solver first

Do not be a slave of the process, learn from it

Your Figma/Sketch file organization matters, but the codebase is way more important

Don’t limit yourself to a tool

Validate assumptions all the time.

You do not need to invent every interaction from scratch

Understand the purpose of a Design System

Take advantage of your teammates knowledge and creativity

You can be a quarterback for you team

Work with an engineering mindset

Communication and empathy matters a lot

Everything is about patterns

Design progressively

You are paid by a company to generate value

Learn from everything

Do not disconnect from the world

Design with a purpose
