Designing at AddThis

DSC 0011

Now that we’ve finished releasing AddThis Pro, it’s time to get back to the rhythm of things. Some key take aways of designing here:

1. Share your ideas. Talk about them. Don’t design in a bubble. Talk to your team about setting the bar high.
2. Play to people’s strengths and compliment them. If they’re better working in google docs, let them punch out the bullet points they need. If they’re more visual, let them express everything with pictures.
3. Success breeds success. Carry the momentum of “winning” into each new feature.

Kudos to our design team for making it such a pleasure to work with. This has been one of our best designs yet.
