Northbrook, IL, United States, 2010/12/22 - The DesignAdvisor beta site launched December 2010, providing an interactive network connecting designers with other creative professionals to exchange feedback and receive demographic ratings on design work.
Design Advisor announced today the beta launch of designadvisor.com, a site that connects design professionals, including graphic designers, artists, photographers and web designers, to share design work and feedback. The site features a powerful voting system, with results arranged according to demographic segments, enabling designers to have visibility of their design’s impact on different markets.
Design Advisor’s interactive system provides a checkpoint in the creative development process to ensure the intended message is being received and embraced by the target audience. Marketing consultants, design firms and freelancers will utilize Design Advisor as a tool to build credibility and provide solid evidence of the community’s reaction and acceptance of a design before it is ever launched. This rating information makes for an attractive pitch when selling an idea to a client or supervisor.
Kara Lineal, Design Advisor’s founder, can attest first hand to the usefulness of the features offered at DesignAdvisor.com, “As a full-time in-house graphic designer for corporate America and part-time freelancer, I’ve often witnessed critical design decisions being made based on the subjective opinion of a client or supervisor rather than based on proven results.” She added, “DesignAdvisor.com allows the designer to present work with the influential backing of community elected ratings and feedback from other design professionals. This is a critical tool to ensure the design that best communicates to the intended audience is the design that makes the cut.”
At DesignAdvisor.com, designers enjoy the following features:
• Submit designs, artwork, photography and videos to be critiqued and rated;
• Submit two designs for comparison to gauge which receives the stronger response;
• Post specific questions for feedback from the community of fellow designers;
• Review ratings assorted by demographic segments, including gender, age, income, ethnicity, education and location;
• Post a professional profile and portfolio of work;
• Network with designers and creative professionals.
