Episode 29: Dealing with Deadlines (with Lucy Battersby)

The word "deadlines" has the word "dead" in it, so those things must be bad for us, right?

As designers we have a habit of being terrified by deadlines. Often we're paralysed with fear by deadlines. But maybe we can think about them in a way that actually makes us better at our work.

We speak to Lucy Battersby, journalist for the Fairfax press about how she deals with deadlines, how the concept has changed over time and how they're a great tool for weeding out the weak.
