To show the importance of design, explain the job it does in writing

Design plays a pivotal role in the success of any number of journalism products — websites, mobile apps, even subscriber preferences experiences, to name a few. The value of design can be better demonstrated through thoughtful documentation of design decisions.

These tips could be especially useful for showing design’s importance to management.
