Session Description

Anyone can develop the skills necessary to do good design. Design is not a mysterious craft practiced by a select few. And it’s not about learning a piece of software, or blindly following a set of guidelines, or trying to implement the design process that's  in vogue.  Design is a learned skill, and like any other, can be developed through focused observation, analysis, and deliberate practice. This session outlines a method for developing the skills that will put you on the path toward good design.
