Always on the lookout for great sources for our entrepreneurs here at the DI, we came across this website recently. It is jam packed with resources to help you design a great business, brand, and product. And it doesn’t assume design knowledge! So go have a look at Design for Founders, and while you are there take a look at their book.
Great design can make or break your business.
We’re in the midst of a startup revolution. With the rise of internet, starting your own company has become easier than ever. And what does this mean for you?
It means more competition.
If 10 years ago, you could build a profitable company with an ugly and unintuitive website, this is no longer true.
Your product must solve a problem. But everyone is solving problems these days. You need to provide a better experience than everyone else. Design can be your competitive advantage.
“As far as the customer is concerned, the interface is the product.” — Jef Raskin
Design for Founders aims to bring design closer to business owners.
It breaks down branding, graphic design, UX, and conversion optimisation into easy to understand concepts so that busy entrepreneurs are able to learn one bit at a time and apply it right away.
