Articulating Design Decisions
Title
Articulating Design Decisions
Author
Tom Greever

I have mixed emotions on this book. It was released in October of 2015. In that year, this book would have really resonated with me. However it is the year 2019... things have really changed in the UX world. Communication is still very important and it always will be. However my role as a UX Designer is more focused now on development instead of design.



The idea of going to meetngs and spending a lot of time wireframing your designs... seems like something you would do in 2015. The UX world is all about components now. Wireframes are almost dead in a sense. You can use your reusable components and make the mockups faster. However communication is still vital and this book does a great job of bringing that back to the foreground of your mind.
