2 years since Tom’s book Articulating Design Decisions was released we catch up with him again and ask what he’s learnt – is there anything he would now do differently? What have readers of the book found challenging?

In this episode we take a look at some of the challenges you say that you face, and even try to give some advice about how to meet those challenges.

We talk to Tom Greever about Articulating Design Decisions. How do we talk about our designs effectively with stakeholders? Every designer has to explain (and justify) their design decisions to non-designers but what are the skills tactics and methods that are needed to pull this off in a way that opens the door for your project to create or improve the user experience?
Just before they magic themselves off to the airport we sat down with Josh Clark and Stephen Hay. Josh was closing keynote speaker at UXLx 2015 with his talk Magical UX and the Internet of Things. Stephen held a day 1 workshop – Responsive Design Workflow as well as a conference day talk entitled The Art of Deception.
