DesignOps requires a different skillset to UX design and design leaders, so understanding its role and function are essential for hiring the right people and management. A design leader is responsible for “what” the organization is creating (the product), while DesignOps must focus on “how” the company delivers the product.
ing with designers to turn design ideas into functioning code. Front-end and back-end engineers use this code as a foundation to develop the final product.

Prototyping is challenging for designers using image-based design tools. These static mockups and prototypes never achieve the fidelity and functionality required to get accurate feedback from testing and stakeholders. Designers often have to use several tools throughout the design process; one for design, one for prototyping, and another for testing. This workflow is not only(…)
What Is Design Iteration? Design iteration is the repeatable process of improving a product (or part of a product) in relatively short but regular bursts, otherwise known as ‘design iterations’. These design iterations can consist of high-fidelity prototypes, mid-fidelity wireframes, low-fidelity sketches, or even simple diagrams such as sitemaps. Design iteration drives the overall design(…)
