Perfect for Editors
I'm an editor who has been fortunate to work with some truly talented designers. I've always been mystified by their skills to bring together multiple elements on a page in an engaging, attractive, and logical arrangement. I don't expect this podcast to make me a designer, but if future episodes continue in the vein of the first, I should be able to communicate more clearly with the designers I work with, understand how and why they make the decisions they do, and perhaps even offer some of my own creative input on designs and lay outs. Well done. Looking forward to many more episodes.
I am not a designer. I don't want to be and I don't pretend to be. But I am a technical creative and in the single available episode, I already have a couple of new tools to communicate to designers who I work and communicate with. What a great resource to find something that gives me enough information in under 5 minutes to change the way I communicate and to hopefully do it in a way that is clearer and more accurate for those that I am communicating with. I am excited about what the subsequent episodes will bring.
Keep 'em coming!!!
The first episode was great!
Keep them coming!!! I really enjoyed this podcast. Explained a lot in a very short amount of time.
