Fabulous post, Alastair Simpson. You absolutely capture the reality of this role.

A lot of designers still look at management as the natural progression in their career but it isn’t. It is a distinct path with a whole new set of skills to learn.

I also think you’ve done a great job dispelling the negative connotations with management by highlighting the impact of the role.

By day, executive designer at Innovatemap where I help tech companies design marketable products. By night, co-founder of UX Power Tools.
