Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work?

I usually check email first, tackle small jobs next, then settle in to do the thoughtful or experimental work. Some days are highly productive in terms of the number of files created while others are spent on research and developing an idea.

What tips would you give to improve productivity?

Shut off social media - it can be very distracting.

You're better than your colleagues at:

Not better but maybe more experienced, so I'd like to say wire-framing or typography but it's probably just age - I've just been designing longer than the junior designers.

Know when the design is finished. Also, if something's not working... try making it bigger.
