A big part of me would like to ask several of the people I follow and who follow me for some feedback on design, content and overall nature of certain work projects. The main one currently being our website that we’ve been re-designing for the past nine months.
The problem with reaching out is that my personal life with break into my professional life. Not that you couldn’t do some research and potentially find my work place, but I don’t want any Facebook like job mishaps.
On our development website, we’ve had content come from four different sources, laid out and worded by four different peoples and placed in four different locations. There’s a great amount of inconsistency with the content so the boss decided to hire a content writer. That and he could never get around to finishing writing stuff. The writer has been given a full copy of our development website to toy with and has made drastic changes.
Now I don’t know if it’s my attachment to my work or the fact that his alterations don’t work well with what we want to present, but I really don’t like what he’s done. I get we need to cut down on content, and have already done greatly compared to the old website but now there’s so little content that it doesn’t make sense. Major features have been completely scrapped, little tid-bits of insightful information have been removed and there’s a huge lack of content.
So I want to present both versions of the website to individuals in my field but don’t know where to go. Suggestions?
I’m really looking for help and am willing to share our development website privately. We need more eyes on this to truly get a proper perspective on this.
Would anyone be willing to help?
