A designer project checklist? I've seen a lot of design project checklists out there and they tend not to incorporate elements of what my own workflow looks like, feeling like they miss the mark in a lot of regards. Below I have created what I deem to be the ultimate designer project checklist that meets my needs and hopefully your own.

If you think something should be added or you have other feedback, contact me and let me know.

Planning & Discovery

Content

Design QA

Usability

Closing

File Organization & Production

And there you have it. A simple, straight-forward, but fairly well captured designer project checklist.

You may have wondered why there were other things on there that a normal designer may not need to do, like check in with stakeholders, check for UX and copy. Aren't those for Project Managers, User Experience Designers and Copy Writers? Well, I'd have to disagree with you if you felt those did not belong. Any good designer is a problem solver, and any good problem solver would be checking the assets they are working with, and making sure it all works properly before handing it to the next person.

I hope this suits your needs. Again, if you have any feedback, contact me and let me know. Happy Creating!
