More specifically, weÛªre talking about the brand-new site redesign. The new design has been a solid 9 months in the making. (And Pamela is really happy to finally get this baby delivered Û_)
For a business, smart design goes hand-in-hand with real-world objectives, and thatÛªs the focus of our conversation.
In this 25-minute episode, the team talks about:
- How the new design reflects and serves changes in the business
- Explanations of some of the visual elements that create the new look and feel
- The conversation behind bringing comments back to the site
- LaurenÛªs thoughts on what to ÛÏstealÛ from the new design
- The tension between being in community and getting work done Û_ (Nope, we didnÛªt resolve it!)
