Why are designers and developers increasingly throwing shade at product management? Is this an insurrection? So... (1/4) issues around collaboration between developers and designers are being resolved. Alliances established. More professional trust. So the focus is shifting...

However “Design Leader” is often used colloquially in organisations to indicate the people who are leading/directing the design team. Often these people have line management duties, but not always.

For the sake of a couple of pedants who haven’t quite realised that a single tweet cannot contain all that it true about a topic, leadership obviously doesn’t equate to management and all designers are leaders in their own way.

Actually no. I agree with the sentiment and have said pretty much the same in the past. It was the fact that you made assumptions about my motivations in an attacking sort of way that got you blocked.

But yes, if I was a researcher I'd defnitly be raising more than an eyebrow here.

It's also worth noting that this is just a model. I'm sure marketers are probably thinking, where are we in this model. Maybe the finance team are too. No model is perfect and some constituents or features will always be left out.

If design is marginalised then design research will be doubly so. As such, if you want to raise up design research you probably need to raise up design first.

True. I guess it depends on what sort of research you're talking about. Is it market research, is it design research, is it something else?

Desert Island Fonts. If you were washed up on a desert island with seven cases of type, what would they be and why?

The two ways people become Design Leaders: 1. Work your way from junior designer, to senior, to lead, then finally manager, over the course of many years. 2. Be the first designer in a fast growing start-up and get thrown in at the deep end.

Nice article from on growing design in a balanced way. I especially like his three legged stool metaphor. See so many companies that look like this, with little or no design at all.

On the subject of designer to developer ratios, Is it ever possible to have too many designers? “Maybe I’m biased", says @fixper "but I haven’t yet encountered that in my 20-year career,” she laughs. “Designers are such value-creators within an org.”
