How will designing under a time constraint influence you as a designer?
I think that it will be more stressful, but as someone who likes to second guess themselves, I think that time constraint just allows you to trust your gut as a designer.
When you were asked to switch how did you react? What challenges did you face and how strong was the other student's progress and file organization in comparison to your own when you switched?
Honestly I had no clear plan for myself and the website, so I was excited to see what someone else had come up with and how it might help me to have something to work from. I think one of the challenges was trying to take what I saw and follow the train of thought how I thought he wanted.
How will this experience prepare you for future work as a designer?
I think it is definetly a real work scenario and it will help me understand quickly to observe and take on another designers ideas and build from that.
