If you're asking for feedback, at least give us the pitch
8 years ago from Tristam Goch, Design Director @ Damn Fine
I'm on the fence over whether this should be a place purely for news or somewhere to get feedback from other designers too. I do know that it's the only online design community I actively enjoy engaging with though, so here's something I've been thinking about that might make it a bit better.
The thing is, I keep seeing a ton of posts from good designers that are just a link to a project and a request for feedback. No context or explanation. Maybe a defensive "I whipped this up in 30 seconds so maybe it sucks" disclaimer. You wouldn't present work to a client with no explanation of your decisions and process, so why are you doing it to us? Just because we're experienced, and maybe have a better handle on what constitutes constructive feedback, doesn't mean we automatically have this magic insight into what's going on in your work. If you want good feedback you have to help us to help you. Give us a bit more to go on. Tell us a bit about the thought process and the constraints of the work. Don't be shy.
