Ask DN: Peer Design Feedback?

almost 4 years ago from , Product Design

Being the only designer in a team, you get a lot of freedom and ability to mould have a product would take shape. Down side of this is sometimes it gets a little difficult when you are stuck. That's why a fellow designer can come in and give you a good nudge so you have a clear idea on how to move forward.

Few places I'm can see this happening is Facebook groups(design+code), Slack groups(team slack), occasionally good ones come through to dribbble or behance.

My question is: Where do you guys go to to get quick feedback on stuff that you are working on from fellow designers? Care to share your go to place? or do you have a different approach to this?

    There are a few places I can suggest, just be careful with your companies policies about sharing work and concepts before release.

    • http://desinion.com this or that testing, it's free, easy to use and great.
    • http://www.criticue.com most of the users are amateurs here and you won't find any decent sites to critique yourself. Credits are expensive.
    • http://hunie.co/members/ mostly amateur designers here and it requires and invite.
    • https://usabilityhub.com this is, as the name implies a usability testing site. you can run your concept by hundreds of users and see if they understand your navigation or if they like the way stuff is arranged.
    • Zurb is unifying their products (one of which was for gathering feedback) into a single product called Notable (no ETA on the launch yet). Last I checked, you had to bring your own testers with them though.

    I hope this gives you a better understanding of what's out there. Personally, I do use some of these sites (Desinion and Usability Hub) but I do not take the opinions of uninterested random people too seriously. I instead prefer to ask my friends of members of my team, even if they are not designers - after all, the products we design should make sense to anyone.

    You could also try posting here if what you're working on is interesting.
