The more and more I dig projects and research about Product Design, the more it all started with a problem. With a problem always comes with a solution, this is where it usually begins.
The great lads from Invision has been taking the industry today by sharing their first Product Design Trends Report where they collected insights from over 1,650 creatives worldwide. The respondants provided their thoughts about their education, career path, roles, compensation ranges, tool preferences, income variables, purchasing habits and more. It's really an interesting document to dive into and we just can't help to be amazed by all the numbers. If you're part of our design industry, you really should give it a look.
Design plays a leading role at 38 percent of the world's largest organizations. At startups, it's even higher with 65 percent leading with design.
87 percent of designers prototype during their design process to visualize, communicate their ideas, and explore solutions, with 76 percent using rapid prototyping tools. Only 2 in 5 designers are involved in code development.
Design's influence in business is growing. This report will help business leaders make more educated decisions about which design tools and specialities they should cultivate at their organizations in order to remain competitive," said Clark Valberg, InVision CEO. "We hope to help designers and their larger teams better understand their position, their market share, and their competition.
