How To Be Receptive To Design Feedback | Shanique Shields, Shopify

Episode 43 Show Notes:

As designers, I think most of us consider our work a piece of our inner selves because creating design requires us to draw inspiration from our thoughts. So when someone challenges or criticizes our work, I think it's a bit challenging not to take it personally. In this episode, Shanique and I talk about how we equip ourselves mentally to be receptive to design feedback. We also share our worst feedback sessions and how we've grown to speak up for ourselves. Take a listen and tag @uinarrativeco on Twitter to let us know how your last design feedback session went.
