Writing of the week
This week I've been thinking about new features, although being still in the release phase I'm going to go step by step to validate them.
In the next months, let's hope around mid-summer, I will migrate the whole Notion (UX - Resources Database) product compendium to the new site, for better customization and control.
Using Notion (this link), one pain was the classification, which I'm fixing it, besides the amount of information, which is not bad, but I want it more refined, and show only the top of the top, quality over quantity.
This division will be based on the interaction design layers, strategy, definition, structure, skeleton and surface, creating subgroups for a more understandable architecture, and adding only high-end products.
This is just one feature to be developed, and after the second release, new features will be further developed to create an Product Information Ecosystem.
Thank you so much for the support, you guys are surely the best.
