Social Sound Design 09/25/12

Social Sound Design is a Q&A site encompassing all disciplines of sound design. If it involves sound, you’ll find it here.

Andrew Spitz is a busy guy. In week 1 of our month on audio we wrote about { sound + design }, Spitz’s fun audio hack site. Turns out he has another site focusing on audio.

The aim of Social Sound Design is not theory but function. In the FAQ he writes, Avoid asking questions that are subjective, argumentative, or require extended discussion. This is not a discussion board, this is a place for questions that can be answered! ‘Nuff said.

Design-wise, his site has a modern look and feel. Like Quora and ifixit Answers, it has a spacious and intuitive layout that greatly contributes to issue resolution. This is important because when we come to forum sites we are often arriving already in a state of annoyance or panic around our particular problem.

Poor UX (user experience) exacerbates these feelings. The comment threads should be easy to follow as we scroll down the page. Too many ads and tightly fitted text can make us more stressed than we were on arrival.

Bottom line, it’s good to have many alternative forum sites to have a wider pool of people to help you solve your problem.
