How I do Design Handover
- Conduct a planned 30 min meeting with the whole team - frontend and backend engineers, product managers, QA, and everyone involved.
- PM presents the feature objective, goals, and business impact. And then, the designer explains the user flow (Sharing Figma link and asking everyone to observe the designer. Don't screen share, as the motion can be too jarring), how the interface behaves, the known edge cases, and its expected behaviors.
- Wait for questions, don't expect any estimations - they just saw the design. It's important to provide them enough context and time to absorb the idea fully.
- Once the designer and the product manager answer their questions, Look for rabbit holes and provide them clarity on what to achieve. Decide when to stop.
- The same happens, but via an email (or tool of your choice). The Figma screens can be the prototype if there is a complex screen experience. Or, there can be different sets of screens to explain each traversal.
- Another way is to record the Figma exploration and share it with everyone so that they can watch it multiple times (and can even use it as a reference later)
