Run, Hide or Learn: The Secrets of Successful Design Feedback - How can some people enjoy listening to critiques or expressing their feedback? You can probably relate, you have presented your work and were waiting for some feedback, the deadline right in front of you鈥 then you received unexpected criticism. It can be pretty overwhelming and uncomfortable to see your hard work taken apart. As designers, we are no longer designing in isolation. Design critiques are a key part of the product design process that, if harnessed correctly, can encourage collaboration and improve ideas. In this event, our speakers explore what it means to give a constructive design critique, and outline the fundamental principles on how to receive critiques effectively and use them to your benefit.
