Hey beautiful Patreon community!
For those of you I haven’t met, I’m Ben and I lead Patreon’s Design team. Our team of researchers, graphic designers and user experience designers work closely with Creators to build a better Patreon. I hope many of you have had the pleasure of meeting with one of our awesome researchers or designers. If not, great news: I’m here to announce an exciting new way we want to involve Creators in our creative process.
I’m excited to announce Open Studio! On Mondays (not every Monday, but always a Monday), someone from the design team will post to the community an idea, a design in flight, some interesting research, or a vision for the future. The purpose of this is to start a conversation between Creators and us folks on the Design team. So when we post, join in and let us know what you think. Any and all constructive feedback is welcomed (and we’ll frame our biggest questions in the post to help get things going).
This upcoming Monday, April 1st, we’ll be showing some designs we’ve been working on that help improve the layout of your creator page , including a better display of your creator information and cover photo and the ability to chose a custom brand color .
Thank you all for being awesome, and I can’t wait to show ya’ll some pixel next Monday.
In the mean time, meet our team (pictured below, but they also will be introducing themselves in this thread):
Vanessa, Kristine, Amy, Nicholas, Darby, Amanda, Simon, Alisha, Scott, Annie, Ben, Alex, and Alpaca
