Ignore the designer-speak. Let your work do the talking

Try to ignore all that designer-speak-jargon. Outside of places such as Twitter, It’s your work that really counts at the end of the day.

Try to ignore all that designer-speak-jargon.

Outside of places such as Twitter, It’s your work that really counts at the end of the day.


Let your work do most of the talking. That’s the voice that needs to be heard.

Don’t in any way feel that because maybe you didn’t have a formal education in design, or that you’re a little more recent to the game, that you’re in some way inferior to those folks that constantly chat designer-speak here, there, and everywhere.

Of course, be able to vocalise your thoughts and ideas clearly, but don’t feel that you have to get caught up in some kind of ‘Designer-Jargon-Speak’ jousting tournament on somewhere like Twitter just to impress other designers.

My advice to you. Don’t sweat it. Let your work do most of the talking. That’s the voice that needs to be heard.
