Death by Comments The NDA Podcast

    • Arts

“I can’t believe they paid for that” “That kerning burns my eyes” “Seen this a million times” “Wouldn’t touch this project with a barge pole”
Scrolling to the bottom of the page to see the comments is some people’s guilty pleasure — but if it’s your work they’re commenting on, it becomes a more sinister read.
What’s the purpose of this echo chamber? Should we be stepping in when comments turn personal? Are we making the work better, or damaging the designers behind it? These are just some of the questions we’ll be asking in this week’s episode, chatting to the people both behind and at the mercy of the keyboards. 
Speaking to Armin Vit, Co-Founder of UnderConsideration / Brand New and Tom Banks, Editor of Design Week, about the platforms they’ve created and the commentary they incite. To understand what it’s like on the other side, we’re talking to James Greenfield, CEO & Founder of Koto Studio and the designer behind some of the most reviewed projects in history. Plus Olivia King, Head of Design at Eucalyptus discusses a project that was revered in the industry and ripped to pieces by the audience. 
A conversation that will make you think twice before you hit post.

Hosted & created by Katie Cadwell
Edited by James from Be Heard
Original music 'Theme From NDA' by Jamie Ellul & Toby McLaren
