What Designers Can Learn from (Code) Review

Designers often have backgrounds in fields in which a sole creative genius is still the ideal. Having someone else look at your work at an early stage can feel like a threat to your creativity. So how can you involve people early on so that you’re avoiding a waterfall process, but also making sure that you’re not setting yourself up for design by committee? I found my answer when learning about code reviews.
