Whether you’re working internally or with clients, using words to describe a visual concept can only take you so far. Saying “picture this” without an actual picture may leave members of a team seeing and thinking different things.

By the time we wrapped up Phase I of the project, Pixo’s director of UX, Melinda, and I felt like we knew the college really well. We’d talked to about 175 people associated with AHS through questionnaires, workshops, and a lot of interviews.
