Title: Critiquing Design: Create Awesome User Experiences Through Helpful Design Feedback

As projects work toward completion, we get to see designs in various iterations and provide feedback along the way. But how do you know that your feedback is moving the project in the right direction? How do you give “good” feedback to a designer? What does “good” feedback look like?

We’ll discuss what goes into a design critique, its purpose and structure, and the common pitfalls of poor design feedback that add confusion and hinder progress. But don’t fret! We’ll walk through a simple method to help you give useful and actionable feedback that can actually help to improve the design, and ultimately, the user’s experience.

As product owners, we want to create awesome user experiences that add maximum value for our customers and our business. Learn how you can contribute more effectively to design critiques so that your product can realize its full potential.
