From John Maeda’s latest newsletter:

Three Things That I’m Thinking About Design In Tech

  • Design tools for individuals are fully figured out on the computer, and they’re priced reasonably. But design tools for teams are still up for grabs — especially when considering the definition of a team.
  • When teaming with developers or product managers or marketing teams or content strategists or executives, and even other designers, the single winner for the right kind of design tooling has not been resolved.
  • Scaling design the way that developers have been able to do with cvs/svn/git/etc is not the solution. The co-ownership of experience beyond design, with precise direction and coordination, is. And look out for AI.
