week 7 delayed

First of all I want to apologize for being so late with this blog post, with being sick I didn’t feel up for it and now I have been putting it off for far too long, as I do, quite often. Its really one of my personality flaws. But okay enough of this apologizing, we’ve got opinions to share and feedback to receive so let’s get cracking..!

This weeks reflection is about: If you had a design challenge, would you join and participate in one of the types of online communities we’ve been researching? Why or why not?

If I had a design challenge would I join one of the communities I have been researching… It depends really. Its depends on the type of design challenge, whether I believe I have a great idea that needs more working out then I would consider using a website such as quirky. However I must say that for me the barrier of having to pay money to join the community really is too high for me. If I would like to develop the idea further (with the help of other people) I would like to ask the help of designer friends (I am lucky that I have quite a few).

When I have an idea that is (I believe) fully developed, to a stage where I am ready for production, then I might give myself a chance to try out indiegogo or kickstarter. However I do feel I would hesitate to do so. Just because those websites are so saturated with good ideas that I would be scared my good idea would get lost in the big pile.

I would for sure use my social network to try and get other people to promote my idea as hard as I am promoting it. But the basis would then probably still be in indiegogo.

Its hard to say, I have never had an idea I believed in that much I have wanted to develop it so I can’t really say.

    If you had an idea you were excited about, what would be the first thing you would do? (And I hope you are feeling better!)
