I’m working on designing a product with some friends of mine. We might end up starting a company and actually producing it for the masses. So, I can’t really post much about the design process, lest I reveal all of our delicious details about the product. But, I can certainly say how humbling it is. How scary it is, and how it makes me feel as a designer.
I went into the project thinking I was going to be “the designer” but one of my friends is a budding creative. She wants to do some of it, too. How can I work with someone that hasn’t spent a year being torn apart by design teachers?
We are currently using dropbox to cloud-store our files. I put screenshots in there of what I’ve been doing. She asked me to put the native files in the drop box, too.
I want to support the team, the company, the product in the way that I know how: graphic design. It is with the spirit of support that I organized the files so that they all can tinker with it (by “organize” I mean grouping layers and naming them clearly). Together we can build something better than separately, but I am bracing myself. I’m trying to divorce myself from my designs and look at them as the team’s assets.
