When you start the project, you have to talk to project members in order to get essential information to create a good design.
If you have to give results of your work to someone to proceed, make sure you brief properly: not only share screens and reports but explaining the reasoning behind your design solutions.
Do your best to stay informed on implementation progress and be present when developers decide what to scarify in order to deliver the product on time.
Also just be a nice person and a good team player. Smile, feed developers with candy. It makes communication easier.
