Hey there Chris,
Thanks so much for your great and elaborated answer! You talk a lot about the fact that there is barely time left for a designer to do research and such at smaller companies, what I find hard is that thesedays digital design productivity is sky high what does a solo designer week looks like in amount of hours?
I'll soon start at a small company where there has been no designer on board until this point, and there is definitely a lot to improve on, but in the end it's a saas product with quite some options but not too much either. What would you say works best to stay relevant in terms of design deliverables once the low hanging fruits are gone?
Thanks again Chris for your great answer!
