The Weekly Stripe – 19.03.21
The need for designers to incorporate business theory into their everyday practice is becoming increasingly essential, especially with the dramatic shifts in our ways of working over the past year. In our latest Weekly Stripe, we explore the relationship between design and business, and the future of the hybrid practitioner.
What role can designers have within business? Second Wave Dive founder’s book, Ryan Rumsey, published by InVision “is a guidebook to help designers gain more trust and build better relationships with business partners, empowering great work.”

“We believe that designers must take greater responsibility and embrace metrics to actively show how their design work connects to business goals.” writes Enrique Allen in a Medium Post — Design for Business Impact.
As part of their Business Value of Design series, McKinsey’s report Delivering the business value of design includes a variety of articles and videos on Design Leadership.
Design Observer’s podcast, The Design of Business | The Business of Design interviews people from different industries and disciplines to talk about “design, business and the values that govern how we work and live together.”
