Diary of an App--meeting the team
Last week I met with the team with whom I'll be working. In addition to Alison, my project manager, I met with Brandon, the Creative Director, and Adam the Illustrator/Animator. We had a productive 2 hour meeting. We discussed what the app will target and the age range of the target group. This initial meeting turned out to be extremely important. During the discussion, I discovered that one of the original ideas for bringing the app to users would not work. I don't want to reveal what the issue was, but I will say that had this been discovered later in the process, it would have meant a change of course that would have been more costly and time consuming. I am waiting to hear back from one of the team members about proceeding in our new direction.
