→ Product design team process – "Defining a process for your team will never be finished, you’re always tweaking it or shifting things around to see how/what works for your team. It never ends, it just continues to evolve. This article assumes that you have a basic understanding of the software development lifecycle. Creating a process for a design team you have to really understand the business, the people, the context of their realities and how all those things come together."

In the affordable market, major automakers offer vehicles that feel more playful than futuristic. And in the luxury market, innovation and craft are eclipsed by the antics of CEOs and stakeholders, causing finances to cast large shadows over eco-friendliness."

Designed by Marco Condello, Necto Mono is available in one style (Regular) with full European language support. Open source, free for personal and commercial use.
