Write like you design

Onori discusses the importance of writing skills for designers. He notes that while drawing boxes may come more naturally to designers, writing is also a critical part of the job. Whether communicating through Slack or presenting ideas, the ability to write well has become essential for designers. 

The author believes writing should be approached like design work. Designers already have creative processes for visual work; Onori recommends applying a similar process to writing. He suggests using the same style designers feel comfortable with for visuals. While writing does require practice, treating it as an extension of design may help more things come naturally. 

In summary, Onori makes the case that writing shares many similarities with design work. By thinking of writing as a design problem and applying tried-and-true visual processes, designers can improve this important professional skill. Experience in one creative field, he argues, can translate well to others.
