Ok, last night’s Apprentice (the GT4 graffiti episode) taught me something. Something more this time… because I lost. Or at least it almost felt like it. When the task was revealed, I had (in my mind) come up with almost the exact design of the losing team!! And though the post-production editing gave me hints which team was going to win… I just couldn’t be convinced - and upon hearing the Sony guys "knew clearly" which was the winning team.. "it was obvious"… I was even more puzzled.
Hearing the interviewed members of the focus groups talking about how they like the winning designs better, etc… I realised I’d known nothing about those consumer’s concerns - and I’m a consumer. I even played (and love) GT3.
So, before I get into yet another design-revamp-launch-get-feedback-that-its-ugly cycle.. I guess I better show you guys (my focus groups) a mock up of the spanking new, more professional looking RssFwd design.
Let me know what you think: Minimalistic Design #1.
- Where did the ads go? Well.. I haven’t found a good place to put them without sacrificing asthetics, so perhaps until then, it’ll be donations only.
- Where’s all the info? I’ll stick them properly into the various sub pages, with the same font as "Enter a feed URL to subscribe" - and rid myself of silly less-pages-is-better mantra..
- What’s with the picture - RssFwd isn’t a desktop app?! Actually, I’m intending RssFwd to be a desktop app - to relieve myself of some bandwidth/load… besides I think the browser-inside-browser-infinite thing is hilarious (Love didn’t think so)
