Not Walking in Your User’s Shoes.

What’s that saying about walking a mile in someone else’s shoes?

Sometimes designers tend to forget this quote, and it leads to a sort of self-centered design.
How can we design for a user if we don’t know how that user feels, or how they use a product.
It’s impossible.

If you’re designing real functional products even just as simple as a worker’s uniform, and you have not spent at least a few days working that job I think your design will most likely fail.

Just something to consider.
