Such outcomes can topple our confidence but in reality, it can be solved with proper designing practices. Here are 6worthy habits to investing into design cleaner and more attractive design with less effort to hook up your users. Let’s start developing these habits now!

They ask every kind of questions, no matter how basic or small those questions might look.

They understand real life context
Successful and productive designers think out of the box. They can think of stepping out the screen. They don’t keep themselves limited just to the screen, rather they think and consider numbers of things like what can be the desired total experience under which consumers can interact with a product? It’s important for UX Designers to think about the bigger environment.
