I’m Lisa Sy, a Product Designer at DEV/Forem - AMA

Hello, I'm Lisa Sy, a Lead Product Designer at Forem.

I’ll be joining Nick Taylor and Christina Gorton tomorrow on Dev's Twitch stream to talk about what I do as a product designer at Forem, Forem’s design system, the design process, and more.

I would love to answer any questions you have about working as a product designer, my design process, design systems & tooling, and more.

Feel free to ask any questions you have in the discussion thread below!

And don't forget to join the stream tomorrow, October 14th at 5 PM UTC. Details:

Hi Lisa. Thank you for the AMA :)

What is a Product Designer role and how does it work?

I'd love to hear what the day to day would be like as one :)

Throwing it back to DevDiscuss Season One with my question. What are some of your absolute favorite design tools? Or just web tools in general.

Lucky to have you here at Forem, Lisa!

Hi Lisa, thanks for the AMA!

What is your educational background as a product designer?

Do you think it's possible to make the move from developer to product designer?

What are some key skills you think you need for your role?

Can you tell us about your journey to get here as a designer for Forem? What professional/personal experiences influenced you most along the way?

  1. Can you talk a bit about your product design experience before coming to DEV?

  2. And not at all related to product design, but what's your favorite song on saxophone?

Hi Lisa welcome!

I always wondered why the dev team has the tag "she/her" or "he/him" ?
