The process of designing a great experience and physically building a great experience have begun to merge. This shift radically changes the fundamental roles of designers and technologists. Today, we iteratively build towards a vision, often by including the user on this journey, without any real sense of a 'finish line'. These overlapping roles between design and technology encourage building early and often, especially amid conceptual ambiguity, to test concepts and frameworks and identifying what breaks and what survives. I will examine the skills needed in the modern designer's wheelhouse to embrace this movement. And I will look at how we can shape the conversation between design and engineering so these disciplines can create a different model of product development.
