Working With Workspace: Testimonials

by Gabriel Shalom, Creative Director

 

In this series we share examples of how people work with Picter Workspace. Today we’re talking about how we use Workspace internally to prepare testimonial content.

We interview our customers all the time to learn about how to improve Picter Workspace. We recently gathered quotes and portrait photos to create some customer testimonials. Once the content was ready, we reached out to our customers to get their approval.  

We used a single Workspace project to collect all images and texts for our internal review.

Once we reached internal consensus, we created individual projects for each testimonial. Here’s the project we created for the testimonial from Jeff Davenport:

We stored the text content in the comments on each photo. This included the quotes themselves as well as attribution information and photographer credit. Here’s Jeff confirming his photo is a self-portrait:

To kick off the conversations we added each customer as an editor to their project. Here’s the add team member dialogue in Workspace that makes this possible:

We used portraits we found online as a starting point for a conversation with each customer. We knew some folks would want to provide us a different image. With editor access they were able to upload alternatives. 

In this case the image we had found of Madeline Tolle was not the one she preferred us to use. Instead she uploaded a beautiful shot by the photographer Tracy Nguyen. You can see the green checkmark indicates the approved image and the red minus sign indicates the rejected image:

Workspace made our internal team communication easy. Workspace also gave our customers a way to feedback and collaborate on selection. Here are the results of our work!
