The Designer Startup

An art-directed type presentation by Adii of WooThemes that shows that there should be a focus on making every decision a question of design.

Time to add another to the list of people I would hire do handle my presentation work.

    Wow! Truly some beautiful slides. Well though out and designed, complimented by an excellent palette. Pretty impressed.

    These are arguably very beautifully designed slides. But: looking at the comparison between tumblr and posterous (see it live here: http://bit.ly/a0z1O0) on page 9, I would draw a different conclusion: Design and marketing might be more important than engineering in the beginning, but engineering is the bedrock of customer satisfaction in the long run.

    Things and services also must work as expected (or even exceed expectations) under their well crafted surface.

    Cheers, Matthias

    Have to agree with Matthias, the comparison is NOT favorable to Tumblr in the trend. Doesn’t mean design is not important, but you cannot conclude that it is more important from that data.

    I just checked, the actual numbers again speak for Tumblr :)

    Let’s see how this plays out over the next year.
