Design Feedback is Good
Occasionally when I am unsure about a concept I am working on I will fire it around a few of my close contacts who are also designers. This kind of feedback is usually of the Yay or Nay variety as we are all very busy and I don’t look for specific or detailed feedback just their general impression. The majority of the feedback I get is from my clients directly.
I have found Dribbble to be a fantastic source of good feedback on design work while it is still a work in progress, hopefully they implement some Privacy Settings soon so I can continue to use the limited and high caliber community as a design soundboard.
Unrequested feedback can be both a positive and negative thing, you have to take it with a pinch of salt – design is subjective and what one person likes might not suit someone else. What I will say though is that if you are giving feedback, make it constructive – “this sucks” or “don’t like it” are useless unless you explain why and how you think it could be improved.
