Wells Riley nailed it home. The entrance of a designer is proving to be a vital part of a startup company. The illustration of the pyramid (my personal favorite) demonstrates the inevitable need of a designer into the team mix.
As an UI designer myself, Wells’ inspiringly use of web elements provoked my thoughts in design – I believe all elements should work in unison in bringing a unified theme to the users. Not one single element should stand out but rather all elements should be cohesive enough to bring out a whole.
One other interesting note to take away from the website is the resources it listed near the end of the page. Wells highlighted quite a few of the designer social media pages that’ll allow businesses and developers in recruiting designers into their mix. To a greater extend, even a designer like myself can take advantage of the list and sign up for the social pages that I wasn’t part of originally.
Take a minute or two to quickly browse through the site.
