    What was the design process like for Apple vs Facebook?

    Both have a very different aesthetic and goal for their sites. I'm mostly curious who was really "in control" of the design, whether it be the design team itself, a marketing team, or a combination of both.

    Thanks for the AMA!

      Yes, they were very different experiences. Going into all the various reasons why that's the case would probably take all week. I worked on a marketing team at Apple (the design of apple.com is part of the global marketing design team) and I worked on a product design team at Facebook, so it's a little bit apples to oranges anyway. Both companies value design as an integral part of the company's direction from the top, but obviously each product and company has their own goals and priorities. Sorry for the unsatisfying response, but there are at least 100 different ways to say "it's different because it's different." :)
