Important Skills for a Designer

May 2, 2008

Yesterday I read an article by John Dilsworth on NorthTemple. The article came about as John considered the question, “what is the one skill that can make the most positive impact in your profession?” John breaks down the work that designers are called to do into 3 categories

  • understanding
  • identifying
  • crafting

He goes on to talk about the work that must be done under those categories and then lists some skills a designer must have and sharpen to be successful in that work. He also lists some specific skills that a Web site designer or interaction designer must have. It is a good list to check and determine where growth needs to occur.

Thanks to Cameron Moll’s Premium linkage for bringing this article to my attention.
