semi-public thought log of sorts

a lesson learned after wasting a lot of time with a designer and realizing this mid-way

what you’re doing is product scrubbing which is

figuring out what needs to be where and how users are going to use it and how you plan on letting the user use it

but a designer doesn’t give two fucks about this

what they need to deliver is ui elements which make that happen

they’re thinking textboxes, input fields, color palette, font sizes, font families and gradients

they’re not thinking what the notification tab is going to show

they might suggest a filter widget on the notification tab, but they’re not thinking why a user is getting notifications of every new post if it’s already coming in feed

that’s you the founder’s role - to figure out what needs to go where and what data is going through it
