“Fire the committee. No great website in history has been conceived of by more than three people. Not one. This is a dealbreaker.”
Web design by community never works. The 2-3 times I’ve seen it tried, design stretched out for months, my designers started developing nervous twitches, and the final product was either bland or downright lousy.
Please, take some leadership: If you’re in charge of marketing, you decide how the site should look.
