A good design review

August 19, 2020

A good design review:

— Very briefly allows the designer to introduce their work. One or two minutes tops, honestly.

— Establishes boundaries for the desired type of feedback. Where are they in the process? What kind of feedback is most helpful — high-level or more granular? Is this production-ready, or early conceptual thinking?

— Lets the reviewers do most of the talking. The presenter does not get a rebuttal unless it’s in the form of a question.

— Allows for more in-depth follow ups where there are more probing questions or issues of work overlap.The Ultimate Guide to Leading a Remote Design Team

It’s honest, authentic, and accessible.
