Not Everyone Is A Visual Designer

While designing the profile pages of Career OnDemand my colleague @enricgili brought up an important point. Not everyone is a visual designer. Not everyone wants to be a visual designer. Not everyone has the skills to be a visual designer. So we decided to request users to provide and content and prescribe a look and feel for them rather than give them greater control over the branding of their page.

At the same time we decided to let them provide access to websites that help them promote their brand and expertise from their profile page. This product design guideline helped simplify many of our conversations and decisions.
