    Wow. Just wow. Thanks for sharing!

    I really liked the 10 commandments of design; particularly the one about having a design that’s everlasting (and not just fashionable). So simple and makes great sense!

    What do you think about working with designers remotely? The article lists great resources and places to find and mingle with designers, but in the context of Kuwait maybe more than half of them aren’t accessible? Do you think adding remote designers to the founding team is possible remotely, with frequent online interactions (and with semi-frequent physical meetings)?

    • Hmmm, that’s a great question. I don’t think I have the answer to this question, but honestly I don’t think it’s going to work. But it all depends, it depends on the stage of the startup, the earlier you have the designer involved in the project the better. But, the earlier the designer is involved the more closer he should be with the founding team. I don’t know, this his how I feel.

      It’s funny you asked this question now, today one of my friends suggested me to do exactly what you are saying with my startup, and my answer was “I don’t think it’s going to work”

        I kind of felt the same, but was wondering whether it may be feasible since everyone is so easily connected these days anyway.

        What’s the solution then? Learn design and do both? Even if that’s possible, there’s not enough time to do everything and you need good partners/founders to balance the load.
