Great products happen when designers and developers work in sync.
Design is never done and code is never finished. Both must be nimble, so you can learn and iterate quickly; but you must also maintain quality, or you'll ultimately lose velocity as technical and design debt gets out of hand.
Design Operations emerged as a term to describe the culture, techniques and tools developed to meet this challenge.
I've spent years as a developer embedded in design teams. I'm used to going from a brand values workshop, to releasing a new version of the UI library, to helping people restore a green build. All in a day's work.
With over a decade's experience building UI in leading Australian tech companies, I've seen teams go through hundreds of challenges. I can help you find options that work for your team.
