iterations.design issue 005

Your weekly newsletter to inspire & enhance your product iterations.

Back at it again! What a long and rather rough week. This week I am testing out a different timestamp for yet another iteration. I am also considering moving this newsletter to weekdays. What do you all think of that? Do you have any other feedback or questions? I would love to chat: hello@iterations.design. In the meantime… Let’s get into it! (The first 5 issues will include an explanation of what iterations.design is and what it is intended to be… so please skip this next quote section if you’ve already memorised it ;)

iterations.design is an effort to find the best way from point A to point B within product design & development. As product people, we are always on a journey that oftentimes includes a gruelling process, with many windings roads and insurmountable amounts of macro/micro decisions. This is especially true when considering the fact that products are always evolving and adapting, whilst leaving their iterations mostly chaotic and uncontrolled. iterations.design wants to change that by gathering tools, stories & inspirations around a community that seeks to enhance this never-ending product iteration process.

Minecraft, Dropbox, and Amazon Prime Use the Same Strategy to Keep You Hooked by Anshumani Ruddra

As the economy takes a hit, consumers are getting much more selective about where they spend their dollars. To hold onto customers, businesses try to build some kind of moat, to keep the competition away from their customers and market share and long-term profits.
