There’s no collective without the individual contribution of every member

Companies that encourage collaboration and communication benefit from enhanced peer-to-peer learning and a greater flow of ideas.

When asked what the shortest poem he had ever written was, Mohammed Ali replied “Me, We”. While it’s true there’s no collective without the individual contribution of every member, we forget that the individual needs the collective just as much. Through collaboration, individuals achieve far more than they ever could do alone.

Designers must have a clear vision of what they’re trying to achieve

When the comedian Bill Bailey was asked how he comes up with his jokes, he replied ‘I start with the laugh and work backwards from there.’ Designers have to do something similar. They begin with a vision of the result and work backwards to figure out what they need to do to make it a reality. This is especially true when designers are tasked with bringing something into the world that has never existed before. They must have a clear vision of what they’re trying to achieve, otherwise, it’s like trying to steer a ship without a compass.
