In this case study, Aarron Walter shares hard-learned lessons, guiding you around the obstacles that tripped him up and exposing the shortcuts that helped his team succeed.

Visiting companies in various stages of growth has taught him that the struggles he experienced are actually common to many teams. We’re all on a difficult journey as designers, doing our best to press forward. If only we had a map.
Aarron shares hard-learned lessons, guiding you around the obstacles that tripped him up and exposing the shortcuts that helped his team succeed. Along the way, he’ll explain how other design teams also found their way and learned to develop a stronger design practice.
