46 D E S I G N F O R S O F T WA R E Moleskin Notebook Designers and developers alike should carry these along everywhere they go. Sometimes, lugging around a 11x17-inch sketchpad is cumbersome, so when I’m sketching on-the-fly, I bring the Moleskin (see Figure 3-6). I use these notebooks religiously in meetings when trying to visualize client needs. These notebooks come in a variety of formats, including sketchbooks, music notebooks, and even storyboard notebooks. I prefer the classic sketchbook with blank pages.
With your designer hat on and hoping the client will be pleased, you head down the path of creating a design, only to have it rejected. After a bit of back-and-forth comes (you guessed it) the dreaded response that leads to thinner timelines and dented budgets: “Keep trying. ” C H A P T E R T W O I N S P I R AT I O N Design discussions continue on with requests like “make it pop,” “make it user friendly,” and “it should look clean” plaguing the conversation. Now, you’re thinking, if only I had a way to have a meaningful conversation that produced clear, actionable items.
You can recover by simply asking your participant “Why? ” Here are some examples of dead-end questions: • Are you happy with ____? • Do you dislike _____? • How should ____ work? • How do you think _____ should look? • How often do you use ______? • Do you think _____ is better than _____? > Avoid leading questions. Leading questions are another form of closed questions. Leading questions tend to be directional in that they close off alternative and potentially undesirable answers. Leading questions often sneak into interviews because of our natural tendency to speak that way.
