iterations.design issue 001

Your weekly newsletter to inspire & enhance your product iterations.

It’s been a really tough week, but I am so proud to finally launch this first issue of iterations.design… Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Julian Paul. I am a Bermudian born growth mindset freak with a love for house music and an Austrian passion for skiing. In my day-job, I am currently building ventry.io and ageofus.io with my core focus being developing and managing anything product related from within. So, my love for products has sparked the creation of this newsletter, which I hope will give you the necessary creative juice to squeeze out just that bit more productivity out of your already hectic week of hustling and bustling in this quickly changing business world. So, without further ado, let’s kick this off:

iterations.design is an effort to find the best way from point A to point B within product design & development. As product people, we are always on a journey that oftentimes includes a gruelling process, with many windings roads and insurmountable amounts of macro/micro decisions. This is especially true when considering the fact that products are always evolving and adapting, whilst leaving their iterations mostly chaotic & uncontrolled. iterations.design wants to change that by gathering tools, stories & inspirations around a community that seeks to enhance this never-ending product iteration process.
