More about curiosity, creativity and redesigns
We continue discussing curiosity - a key designerly behavior. Designers ask a lot of questions - of clients, stakeholders and users to truly understand and empathize with users before translating those insights into action to improve users' experiences.
Genuine curiosity is like a muscle that trained and strengthened through regular exercise. Begin by acknowledging that we don't know something. Research it, ask questions, adopt a beginner's mindset and don't be afraid to appear foolish.
This issue contains links to articles about creativity, redesigns of Twitter and the Whitehouse logo, and upcoming Super Bowl ads.
