Welcome to Episode 6 of Immutable! In this episode, we discuss raising your profile, working in grayscale, getting press for your product, transitioning to product design from web design, and integrating design and research into Scrum.
This is the first new podcast released as part of Spec, a new podcast network for designers and developers! We hope you'll check it out and follow @specfm on Twitter for new shows and updates!
If you have feedback or suggestions please don’t hesitate to reach out to us on Twitter at @immutablefm!
Topic 1: How does a designer or developer raise their profile?
Topic 2: Are there any rules for using grayscale in design?
Topic 3: How do you approach journalists about the app/product that you're working on/launching? Or do you? If not, how do you get people to check it out?
Topic 4: I'm a web designer, but I feel like product design is what all the cool kids do. How do these two disciplines differ and how would you recommend making the transition from web design to product design?
Topic 5: We use scrum at my company. What I've always been struggling with a bit so far is how to integrate the research and design process into the development process while staying as agile and flexible as possible and not ending up with the waterfall method. We often have the feeling in our team that we tend to do too much design and research work up front. But, on the other side, if we don't do it up front, we don't get as much stuff done. Maybe you can share some of your experience?
