I’ve been doing iterative design work for a podcaster I know and respect. When the time comes I’ll be able to announce who it is, but I have to say: I love it! Design is subjective, but even if things are super simple, and I hope that you think they are when you see it, they need to be well thought out. There needs to be a reduction in clutter, distractions, and elements on the page that make for a poorer user experience.
The other thing that I’ve loved is the back and forth between myself and this podcaster. He knows just enough of what he wants that I don’t feel in the dark, but he’s also given me some freedom to help clean things up as well. We’ve worked well as a team despite my generally busy schedule. Late nights can take their toll, but I’ve been energized by the design process, and design is just a great outlet for me to get some creative juices out. Thanks mystery podcaster for letting me participate in your fun!
