One of the values of a great design leader is helping your teams grow and empowering them to do great work. Nick has been fortunate enough to have worked with some very talented designers & researchers over the years that have gone on to do great things. These are examples of the work they produced under Nick's leadership & direction.
At the core of every great leader in design is the experience they bring to the table having done the design & research as an individule contributor. These are some examples of older projects that Nick has done over the course of his career when he was an individule contributor.
As you progress in your career of leading design teams it is important to remain connected with the craft and understand the new techniques & methods in design & research. That continual growth is needed to remain current with the industry and a solid design leader. Special projects, like the ones listed here, are a way to achieve this.
