You’re all designers

At a recent Automattic meetup I led a session between designers and engineers. As part of these discussions, the topic of roles and responsibilities came up.

Specifically, some engineers were questioning whether they should also be product owners or analyze data.

My response to this was probably a bit long winded, but was roughly that we’re all builders and needed to do whatever it took to get the job done.

Pablo Honey, one of our heads of design, put it much more succintly:

You’re all designers.
