A small team at Method worked on the design of Link TV’s ViewChange.org back in the very beginning of 2010. We are excited that the site is recently launched out of beta. ViewChange.org is a platform for social and global action and is the latest extension of Link Media’s mission engage, inform and inspire viewers to become involved in the world. The website was both socially rewarding and interesting for Method to design. The main challenges in designing the user interface were encouraging discovery of content that was still related to topics of interest and also inspire users to take action at every step. We worked closely with the main stakeholders, involving the client in participatory workshops and design ideation sessions intended to bring their vast expertise into the design process.
As a pregnant Method designer, I was lucky to be able to avoid a girly or boring work baby shower and instead have a baby naming shower. I had decided upon a first name, but was still stumped for a middle name. After a short succinct ideation session, as the client, I had hundreds of options, and came out with the perfect middle name for my baby girl.
