Leave Your Baggage at the Door
Sometimes we can get in our own way of our designs. Without even knowing it, our backgrounds, opinions, and even experiences can alter design decisions.
We might have bias towards the color red because of an ex’s hatred for red. If we name all our personas after people we know, we might have certain expectations for each.
When you’re designing something, don’t be a “focus group of one.“ Make sure you don’t allow your personal opinions and baggage get in the way of what you're designing.
