As a designer working on InDesign, I worked closely with product management, development, QA and our beta teams gathering feedback, refining and iterating the design until we all signed off on the design as final. Our team successfully shipped InDesign 1.5 and 2.0.
The work was broken out by features. Below are a selection design specs at various stages which outline some of our challenges and solutions.
