  • Participating in user research sessions to learn from customers on how they use the product, get their feedback on their experience, and present potential design solutions to get their feedback early in the design process.
  • Using design strategy to strike the right balance between business and customer needs.
  • Collaborating with other designers to provide detailed feedback on their work, and addressing any feedback that they have on your work.
