About this Case Study
I am a visual designer in corporate America; I am also on the autism spectrum. I’ve thrived in my career using self-awareness as a tool for bringing out my best work and approaching design from a different direction. Growing a neurodiverse design team has its hurdles, but the pros far outweigh the cons. I will talk about improving work environments, identifying communication styles and being a great team mate to those that are wired a bit differently.
