ARTICLE SUMMARY: When it comes to design what is one of the things we have to do that we really don’t care for? Talking to clients, stakeholders and sometimes a host of others who are involved in our project in one way or another.
It is a necessity if we are going to give the client what they want in a timely manner with a minimum of anxiety and confusion.
Communication is the key to your success and a skill that must be developed. “UI/UX Design: How to Talk to Users” written by Nick Lawrence teaches us how to communicate with those who are connected to our work. He talks about the things we should do, like learning how to
- Be yourself
- Never fail to uphold your end of the bargain
These and the other suggestions will help keep your project going smoothly and with a minimum of confusion and problems caused by poor communication skills.
In a business where we communicate to people all over the world for a living we should be able to communicate with our clients and stake holders face to face with the confidence and ease that we do with our websites.
This is a down-to-Earth guide on how to actually talk to your users, clients, stakeholders in a positive, productive way that will benefit new and seasoned designers alike.
