Hey I'd like people's feedback on the icon set on the link above. Lines too much? too much detail? I'm not sure.
Would like feedback on the icons, that would be great! :)
It may need changing on your website now though, I've made some amends to content on my website.
Thanks Alex! I'll take a look!
Thats crazy George, I've honestly never seen these before lol they're quite nice. Thanks though I do appreciate it, I'm working on some up and coming sets too.
Okay no problems :)
I appreciate that, definitely don't "pussyfoot" at all, be straight, I'd rather you do that :) Just maybe be more friendly with folk and less aggressive and sarcy, i doesn't give a good impression from a DN staff member tbh. After all isn't DN's motto "be nice...or else" :)
Hi Joseph, so basically me and some creative friends had the idea of a simple app where a user can sign ip simply with their name and email address and share links they find useful to specific categories. Kinda like how you'd share a link on Slack to a friend. The user can quickly post a link/story. Its a platform for quick reads, visuals and views with sharing capability and I'm working on commenting too. The admin/design views team will also write their own stories.
Hi Mike, I see your point on the CTAs, I will re-assess this and also I need to assess the menu :) Thank you
I really appreciate your feedback G J, its really helpful and useful. I see what you mean about the purple bit too with not enough separation.
I understand your concerns, I will just remove this post if you like? As it is causing more hassle than it is worth in all honesty.. I will point out, as I clearly state on the article it's just my opinion on what I have used and why I'd recommend the products I have used. It is NOT a review of each particular item.
Yes, I have learnt that a more in depth article would be best and I respect and appreciate your comments and feedback....I will actually take this on board as I enjoy writing and thank you. However it would be more well appreciated if it were in a less-sarcastic or patronising manor, especially being a DN community staff member James. I've noticed on a few posts a similar style of response from yourself.
Like I stress, I state multiple times it is my brief findings and that of my opinion on what I have used/learnt. I understand your advertorial concerns, however I was only trying to be helpful, after all isn't this the point of DN? I understand if I've been "reported" by a certain someone, but I don't think I'm the only one who found SOME of his comments ridiculous and unnecessary. Please notice the entire thread to this article.
I am always open to change and reason, but it has to be backed up with some substance. If you notice in the comments of the story and this post I am always open to learning new things and regularly talk with my fellow creatives :) I enjoy feedback wether that being good or bad, its what makes me better as a creative :)
Thanks again for your time, I respect DN very much and enjoy being a part of it.
Be nice. Or else.
