Personal desires vs user needs: how to give effective feedback

You wouldn’t think that as a Graphic Designer I like receiving criticism on my designs, but I actually do! We Graphic Designers know that we don’t always get things right the first time; we always want to make our designs better and, crucially, meet the needs of end-users. So we love to hear, ‘this isn’t quite right, because…’ However, what we don’t love to hear is, ‘I don’t like it.’

Engagement and motivation

Evan and his girlfriend Irina have decided that their joint new year’s resolution will be to learn a new language: Chinese. Evan is already bilingual and also loves learning new languages so he has suggested this as a perfect way to use his skills, improve and have fun. Irina has not been able to spend much time with Evan recently, due to a demanding new job, and thinks that joining a club together will be a good way of doing this. She is not especially interested in learning Chinese but is happy to go along with Evan’s suggestion.
