I like the logo contrast. Everything a little different from the norm, which I like and you did a nice job.
Regarding Nice Shoes, I see what he/she means. The style of your site is simple and precise. Everything is in visual order and pleasant to the eye. However, your logo, since the A & R is filled in with lack of padding around the your name gives off a rebellious feel. Its not expected. The font inverted that way feels more of organic feel as well. Because of that it creates a contrast in style against the precise style of the rest of the site.
Oddly Reminds me of
I have a feeling there is so much legacy code that makes that system untouchable. I don't even bother with their site now and just use their app.
"Designing moments of perfect"... After looking at it, the phrase should be "Hey Millennials! Step up your Insta Game with Ebay"
Well overdue. I am glad they didn't reinvent the wheel. Small changes will help a lot.
Ha, I agree. Also my eyes go right to that women holding her belly at the top that in the background.
I was as well. The site doesn't to the best to explain what the heck it is. I had to go back up to top to read this little line I missed due to the scroll effects.
There is an animal in each and every human, and there are some human traits of character in every animal. We imagined how animals would look like in the Human world and asked them to tell us their stories.
The illustration style is amazing and refreshing to see especially when everything is icon and photography driven.
I am currently pushing to use roadmaps, mainly to control the endless feature list we have. I do understand the issue of moving forward and never looking back. We are dealing with that right now.
I'm trying to figure it out myself. We have a feature, content, and improvement road map. The Improvement deals with last sprints bugs, current user issues, refactoring, and general style clean up.
Its more about delivery. Just say "My only concerns are X due to Y." Sometimes, I use user persona's and past feedback. However, it doesn't always work. Sometimes you will have to redo months later it, and it will piss you off. However, I have done that to my dev teams. I will always admit my faults.
I understand there are sometimes insane amount politics. One bullet I took out before I posted and wish there were more articles about it. It's feel likes a game of poker sometimes. Some projects you will need stakeholder support to push it forward. Other times the clients will bulldoze you and need to have a "gray haired" individual come in to moderate. Or you have an arrogant egotistical CD or PM, which you are better off moving off the team or learn as much as you can a change companies.
Be nice. Or else.
