Just recently I joined a new project with a big company who I would have thought had their design process already in place, but no. Just as many others (or most of them) they’re missing one big important part that everyone hates doing (not me) and that is documentation.

Be honest, besides your design, what other thing do you deliver to your Eng team to start developing the product? Probably not much, and I get it, it’s tedious and boring.

Now place yourself on the other side, if you were to develop a product (I mean code and everything), what…

In life, I’ve sometimes seen features in products or UI elements in designs that I really find to be implemented beautifully and so smooth that I immediately have to take a screenshot and save it in my Ideas folder.
