  1. John McWade

    John McWade, Before & After

    I remember years ago Tom Peters raging on about the importance of design. And, as usual with Tom, he was right on the money.  Because content and knowledge is now ubiquitous and free, design becomes absolutely critical to adding value and creating something of worth.  It’s no longer content and then some token thought about design.  The design is a significant part of the content.

    That’s why I’m so delighted to have spoken to John McWade. For decades he’s been at the forefront of design in publishing.  He currently publishes the brilliant Before & After magazine, which on a regular basis shares practical tips on graphic design. In doing so, he’s drawing on experience that started when he was the very first user of Aldus PageMaker – a program that grew up to become Adobe – and he founded the first desktop publishing company.

    In our conversation we cover

    the genius of Apple and their design (and it’s not just their cool gadgets)

    how John knows when a piece of work is complete

    the starting point for any project – design-led or otherwise – and the big question you need to ask

    a fundamental principle of design which you can use in planning everyday life, not just a magazine cover

    John’s three word mantra for brilliant design – and for that matter, Great Work

    LATEST: Putting the boot in..

    Liverpool strengthen their title chances with victory at Old Trafford. Brendan Rogers kicked David Moyes while he was down, but what do Dan Mason, Miguel Delaney, Dale Johnson and James Horncastle make of the Manchester United manager?

     

    Also on the show:

    • Arsene Wenger alters his approach and sees Arsenal grind out a win at Tottenham. By contrast, Tim Sherwood says he won’t be changing his ways.

    • -

    Jose Mourinho is also playing to type. He points the finger at Chris Foy as poor discipline costs Chelsea at Aston Villa.

    Takeaway Points

    To compete against free products, find a small segment of the market whose needs aren’t being met.

    Once you’re pricing your app above $20 or so, you’ve already lost the $1-$2 crowd so you might as well try $40 or $50.

    Taking your app off the Mac App Store doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll lose all those sales. Some customers will find your online store.
