Scale Design with Empathy
Empathy is one of the most sought after qualitative emotion in technology productions. In fields that are generated by Computer Science, Algorithms, and Robotics, the technology industry is condensed with engineers and scientists who are trying to create the perfect new product.
Albeit the existence of high-end-tech and attention to detail in surrounding industries, empathy can easily slip away from the product development equation. It’s important to define empathy as putting yourself in someone else’s shoes and actually apply these emotion to yourself devoid of any biases you may carry.
In order to thrive among technology clients among the startup industry, empathy should be built at the core of products.
Customers at times are left frustrated and that is because empathy was not established in the product development. The amount of minutes spent on tasks, how clear or unclear your product is, directly correlates with the level of empathy embedded in your products.
The Global Tribe of Designers
Empathy is a powerful tool designers use to build relatable products that can scale to millions of different humans around the world with a core mission to save universal issues. When designers and thought leaders collaborate on social-good projects, measurable results can be successfully conducted.
Ego aside, professionals set out on a collective mission to fix the world’s largest problems – and along the way of solving these issues – educate people on the value of universal design by allowing transparency in decision-making rooms. In the United States, designers and researchers are in dire need of strategizing design solutions and strategy representations that takes shape of an inclusive culture. Inclusivity means that people from all walks of life have a seat on tables and everyone votes on what is needed to make things better. That is how empathy is established on larger scales and how economies flourish. Empathy results in international productivity.
Roles of Designers in the U.S. Government
In recent years, social media platforms paved a new way of communications with the United States governments by ways of sharing news updates. Viewers now have access to what is happening in our U.S. government. What we see on the news is usually slightly different from social media updates.
As designers, our core value weighs mostly on solving a problem using communication as we feel that government employees can currently benefit the most from a good work flow and enhanced user experience in the universal scope of productions.
