Product Design methodology can be distilled into an executable process, but is dependent on the state of the product's UI, UX, resources, market insight, and brand maturity. The strategy to tackle a product changes slightly based on the former, but in general terms, it looks something like this:
"Oscar’s work speaks for itself..."
Oscar’s work speaks for itself; it’s edgy, modern and innovative. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a professional web design, or logo.
"Oscar's work is terrible..."
Oscar's work is terrible... It does not make any sense. It looks like stick figures drawn by a person without gloves, in -20F weather.
