David Albertson spoke at eBay Inc’s Product and Design Summit about design process. Interestingly enough, I heard many other speakers touching on the same points, about how important it is to consider design a cornerstone of your organization. Here are some of the highlights:

You have to be Good with Gray
– Collaboration is key
– Conversation over Presentation
– Let ideas evolve

You have a stake
– Be responsible for the whole vision
– Function comes first
– Designers make good editors

Simplicity Survives
– Smaller Teams
– Fewer rules
– Small moves are powerful
