Design Challenges

Das hier ist ein sehr interessanter Artikel: The challenges and changes in digital design, von James Kelway.

When complex projects, exhibiting wicked problems, go bad, often failures can be drawn against the lack of collaboration between parties as milestones were passed. To build and not respond to a blueprint would get any contractor fired from a construction site. Yet because we build objects that are intangible, ephemeral and in code, what we develop is a black box that only very few understand in it’s entirety. The majority of people including the client can only rely on trust and hope that what we eventually deliver fulfils their initial vision.

Wirklich eine sehr gute Freitagslektüre.
