You have a good grasp of the medium you are designing for, and you make effective use of prototyping tools.

You succinctly and effectively communicate your work and may be called upon to represent your product team to executive leadership or in design forums. You are actively mentoring junior designers or interns, or participating in design-team-wide initiatives (examples include: interviewing, recruiting, mentoring workshops, design standards, improving design tools, etc.)
