I started a questionnaire for gathering requirements from well-known x-stitch designers worldwide – to send this Typeform to: https://ritaturk.typeform.com/to/qGeHVh (still a WIP) and the completed preliminary requirements gathering one sent to a few top notch designers: https://ritaturk.typeform.com/to/NAlTUw.
But first, from the mind opening and inspiring TED talk by Simon Senek: Why, How, What on Youtube:
Why do we do it? We understand someone’s sense of passion and desire to design cross stitch patterns. We do it because we love cross-stitch ourselves from design to implementation and we want everyone and anyone with an idea in their head to realize their design in cross-stitch – easily.
How do we do it? We do it by making a person’s time spent designing more efficient, with tools made more accessible and more fun; but overall, more effective.
What do we do? We make a cloud based cross stitch design tool within a responsive website portal that also includes a community with a public repository for designs.
Working on the 5th iteration of my design doc now, and hope to publish that here soon.
