-The most typical question in designing is when we should start it in our company . I always use one practical example – if you try to learn swim – when you start it in practice, in other words in the water.

It could be a smart one or not but it is in it, designer Lauri Aaltio answered the very common question about the design. –With design it is the same story as in other business development – start early-fail quickly!
-Try to convince your customer’s feelings designing the product or service. The buyers have to be happy, relaxed, peaceful and motivated in choosing the product or service. Avoid as much as possible the opposite user experiences. In practice this does not mean fearing, shaming and to be angry. The last feelings are the difficult tasks especially when the customer is getting his or her first user experience.
