Quotes from Ritam Gandhi:

“I think it’s very interesting topic because what is design? Is design a visual element, is design how you think about it, the user experience. 

A lot of the times you don’t really understand what it is that you are building until sometimes you see it

Specification and the detail behind every feature is key to make sure things won’t get lost in translation.
