As a design strategist within a professional services firm, this is a very common situation I am faced with somewhat regularly.

Our leadership sometimes regards stakeholder approval so strongly/weighs it so heavily that their personal biases and opinions can win out over what is best for the user or what the data says we should do.

In times like these, I try my hardest to hold my ground and give a clear and concise explanation around why I feel we should proceed in a certain direction. I would say most of the time it works, but the times when it doesn’t can be extremely frustrating. In those times I feel that I am not able to do my job to the best of my ability because, first and foremost, I see myself as the defender of the client/user, and in that moment they are being forgotten or at the least not brought to the forefront.


I love being a designer! I can’t imagine myself doing anything else.

Solving people’s problems is incredibly rewarding. When I design brand assets, my focus is on trying to solve a problem for a specific audience. I like the early phases of design, where I do research to make sure that I understand all the necessary context.

I think it’s fun, I really like when everything clicks, and I understand how to best proceed.

Also, I love how designers understand each other It’s such a tight-knit community that celebrates thinking outside the box. Anything is possible for us designers. I think it’s crucial not to be constrained by limiting beliefs or boundaries nowadays. All this makes a career in design such a pleasure.

This program challenges the way that you think and it really makes you take a deeper look as to why you are designing what you’re designing. It also helped me communicate my ideas better and that’s powerful.

Ludovic and Colton have made my money worth it!!! They saved me from endless searching on YouTube with their curriculum and getting lost in the void with their small class sizes. Highly recommend them. *This is not a sponsor, just real human feelings* 😊
