This is design: convincing someone else
Because our job is (also) convincing people of things
“Making things is the easy part. The hard part is determining what to make and how to make it, then convincing someone else that your suggestions are right. That’s design.” – Mike Monteiro, What Clients Don’t Know speech.
Which actually (and unfortunately) is what I am bad at.
And don’t forget: “Eye rolling is not a design skill”.
