What makes for great design? How do we improve the design we implement to make better products? Listen in on Episode 164 of The UPStarts Podcast, where Zain Raza interviews design expert and intrapreneurial executive Ali Hussain. Mr. Hussain was an engineer at AOL during the early 2000s, a key moment in history where web development was handled like the Wild West - no systems, no managers, and most of all no context for the end user. This experience, as well as Hussain's connection to several intellectuals and authors, led to his modern-day approach to design. Today, Hussain comes to the show to explain why as designers we need to have context for who we're building for, and how creating solid processes around that vision boosts that enormously. Bonus: stick around to the end of the episode to hear Hussain's thoughts on the future of design, as I ask him how the rise of IoT (and voice services in particular) will both borrow from, and change, the core beliefs around design that have so far helped developers build for the Web 2.0 landscape. I found this a particularly insightful conversation to record, not least of all because Mr. Hussain now has always two decades of experience working in the tech business. Now a VP and Head of Design and UX at American Specialty Health, Hussain is a practitioner who actually deals with these issues on a regular basis. How do we connect to our users? Only time will tell but if you're like me, you believe can always learn how best to build for future from studying the lessons of what worked in the past. Enjoy, and share this episode with someone who needs to hear advice on designing great products! **************CONNECT WITH ALI HUSSAIN***************** ****CONNECT WITH ZAIN RAZA:******** Twitter: @ZainRaz14 Instagram: zraza_theupstart Linkedin: --- Send in a voice message: Support this podcast:
