Hey! Just to avoid more people wasting their time writing comments questioning the quality of this post...
This is to demonstrate the power of our craft. Hence why I chose 'Show DN' because I don't often see design used in this way. Ok, so it's not ground breaking UI/UX, that was not the intention. It is to simply show the design community what we can (not should) use design for and the impact we can have.
This story is not being removed (by me at least) because it felt like the post was about the design/functionality of the site.
However Elliot, in future, it could be wise to maybe use a different title of your post that wouldn't focus so much on the 'palm oil' aspect.
Thanks for your support James! :)
And point taken, I've amended the title!
I think you would do well to include to include some callout text to explain why we should be effectively boycotting brands using palm oil.
While I can understand the use of all CAPS in locations where text formatting is limited, I feel like using it on your website makes it look like an angry Facebook post rather than a professional display. Just look at the following and tell me which appears more professional:
- Select the Palm-Oil-using brands below and tweet that they have lost YOU as a customer!
- Select the Palm-Oil-using brands below and tweet that they have lost you as a customer!
Maybe I'm just starting to get old, but I 100% assume any string preceded by # should be interactable - #earthyou. Maybe this was planned for later after traction picked up.
All-in-all I think the awareness you're bringing here is a good thing. I've been fairly "heads down" for the last few months and this is honestly the first time I've heard anything about palm oil.
Thank you so much for some genuinely helpful feedback! I'm making those changes as we speak :)
All the best!
Thanks for sharing this Elliot. It may not be related to Design but it's an important subject none the less.
Can we just say fuck you to all the link spammers?
I’ve reported them but that seems like a far better response!
Another quality DN post! :(
