On Thursday morning the sounding team payed us a visit. The sounding team is comprised of a variety of people with experience working in a number of areas. This team are invited to give critical feedback on all of our work. By doing so, they help us to see our projects in a more grounded and realistic context.
Learning how to receive criticism is central to how we work. In order to improve what we are designing for the people who will be using it, it is vitally important that we be able to: ask the right questions; listen carefully to what’s being said; and re-think the idea accordingly. Inviting people to challenge our thinking helps us to improve our ideas and enriches our work.
