A Summary of

The Boring Designer

Cap Watkins
View original

The best designers are boring designers. They:

Choose obvious over clever every time.

  • When given the choice between flash and function, choose function.

Rarely stand their ground.

  • Try all the ideas and request lots of feedback.
  • When they do feel passionately, the team respects it.

Are practical.

  • Boring designers work for the team, and for the timeframe.

Value laziness.

  • Don't worry about putting their personal stamp on everything, and instead value consistency.

Lead their team.

  • Boring designers lead their teams because they are reasonable.
  • They're trusted because they have the user in mind.
