Hi David, Making stakeholder feedback easy is what we are trying to solve at zipBoard. You can share a link for a quick feedback from your stakeholders and they will quickly and easily be able to send their comments. Take a look at a sample link set up here: https://app.zipboard.co/s/z2TMB Let me know, if this helps streamline your workflow.

Love the website as well. A few things that I do think could do better. 1. Background color. Of course ,it is a very subjective thing. Not a big fan of black. 2. The portfolios could have animations/gifs showing the real magic of what you actually did. Even after I read you are a front end dev, when I was going through the portfolio pages, somehow I wanted to think that you are a designer and you may have designed these pages.
Beautiful stuff. The default options that you have chosen are amazing as well and love playing with the slider! Thank you for sharing.
I am not an expert, but overall the site looks neat. Gets the idea across. But, I do find the English incorrect at a few places. Other then that sharing a few of my thoughts here: https://app.zipboard.co/s/nEjMK Hope it helps.
I love the tool. I can make simple illustrations quickly and would not need to hire a designer for every little drawing.
I have never done it myself, but recently came across this article on how git should be used by designers : https://blog.avocode.com/blog/why-should-a-ui-designer-try-using-git It gets into details of how to implement as well, might be worth a try.
This is so amazing! I always think of documenting my travels, but never end up doing it. It looks like a lot of hard work, but also fun! Beautifully done.
Overall the intentions look good, but it is hard to understand a lot of the listings and filters. 1. I can't relate Vodafone or General Motors with UX or is there something that I did not know about. 2. The categories are confusing and effectively filters controlling them as well. I see two filters on the top "Agencies" & "Companies", then there are few filters on the left menu, not sure how multiple filters are dependent on each other. 3. What about bloggers, freelancers?
Looks pretty cool. I have a pretty complicated name too and have never had a good pronunciation. Two questions : 1. Can it be somehow integrated with linkedin, gmail, skype, that would be cool. 2. Can you add your own voice?
What you currently have is pretty cool. I think, I am asking for new features already. But, surely see both as useful :)
Wes, Thank you for taking the time to read and also respond. You are right, the premise of the article is that product design is not just drawing pretty features, but from idea generation to customer experience, product designer gets involved and drives the product. " That visual designers and developers are not usually the right people to devise test tasks. Most of them are too pleased with their own work to take an objective look at it, which leads them to focus too much on their own pet features/design elements and disregard the user’s goals. They might even dismiss the user’s complaints as minor because they’re not willing to admit their work’s deficiencies." Do not mean to hurt anyone's sentiment, but lets face it, we tend to get lost in the details so much at times, that somebody needs to steer the product keeping the big picture in mind, and all we mean to say here is that, product designer is that person who can keep that vision alive. "Once they are prototyped and validated with the help of user testing and interviews, the Product Owner turns these designs into an actual product." This is only to define the broader responsibilities of product owner. As, I mentioned earlier, at every stage product designer is the one who keeps the focus of solving a user's problem alive . In fact, zipBoard, is built with that in mind that all stakeholders are collaborating well, not just in the design phase, but in every iteration of the product development phase as well.
