  12. In Product Design or favourite Product question, it is also a good idea to prepare 1/2 products that are not well-known. If you're allowed to pick a product to discuss, it's a good idea to go for one of those - the interviewer has less information about it and it's easier for them to assess your approach as novel. Also, for well-know products, the interviewer has probably head the same ideas from dozens of candidates before, so it's hard for you to stand out.
