Plugging in and powering up

My latest for Figma is up, “How to plug in and power up your designer-developer handoff with Figma and Jira.” 

In order to make this post, my team and I interviewed several customers over phone and email, and drew five insights on how product development teams can work better together:

  • Understand each other with a high-fidelity prototype
  • Present your work, even while it’s in progress
  • Align on different sources for different information
  • Save on the toggle tax
  • Lean on templates

This is my new standard for what a post to lead thinking should be, even if it’s accompanying a launch (in this case, the Figma for Jira app). We also bet heavily on the art direction for the post, thanks to Jaedoo Lee for the art.
