Get feedback from others that you respect, and I mean more than only your client. Don’t work in a vacuum. By making your work “semi-public” at certain stages (even if “semi-public” means “within your office”), your design will become stronger as you will be able to respond with creative solutions to the different perspectives of what is working or not working within your project. Use the feedback you receive as a way to understand your own design process. After all, design feedback about a design work of yours can give you insight into not only your end result, but about your design process as well.
This 31 minute masterclass will forever change how you think about environments.
