Design by Intent by Taun Chapman

Good Design is an intentional process. When we make design decisions, those decisions are based on trying to achieve a certain objective. These intents are important to the design process and yet many are ignored by most of our design tools. This talk will highlight how our intents shape our design work. How our tools ignore these intents resulting in lost design information and developer friction. The talk will propose ways our tools or our habits could be modified to easily include the design intent thereby improving usability, reliability and end user satisfaction of the final product.

Dictionary Definition: Intend: “have (a course of action) as one’s purpose or objective”
