Group projects can inspire a sense of dread in the hearts of even the toughest design students. The idea of compromising your design aesthetic, giving up a little bit of control, or working with someone who doesn’t pull their weight can be terrifying, but overall group projects have an unfair reputation. Some of the best projects come from group work, and it’s likely that you’ll have to work with others throughout your professional career, which means it’s time for an attitude overhaul. So, in the spirit of collaboration, we gathered some advice from both current and recent students on how to make your group projects more successful, and hopefully more enjoyable.
