  • Jared explains that a lot of people take the element of the visual first impression for granted, because although your product may be an incredible tool, people won’t want to use it if it doesn’t look good.
  • For Jared, a quality design is synonymous with a great user experience and ease of use. He says that users interact and engage with a product in order to make their lives easier, more productive, and more efficient and if your product does this, chances are you have a good design.
