As designers, we need something more than love for the craft and an eye for insights to be effective. Although day in and day out we share and perfect our designs, we need to consider the nuances of different audiences and contexts when we're presenting them. Understanding these subtleties will make your design presentations more successful, and your designs will get the spotlight they deserve.
Whether you're a new designer or a veteran, join me to explore these nuances and start designing your ux design presentations to be more effective for everyone.
