  • ----- Meeting Notes (4/23/14 22:35) -----Content creators are forced to think about layout too early. Thinking about how content will look is generally less productive until you are already clear on what the content is, why it's needed, who it is for, and a variety of other practical considerations having to do with who creates it and how often it's produced.Designers' workload increases significantly. In addition to having to create many unique templates, each one requires a review and approval process that makes following a narrowing funnel of design decision making much more complicated.Content management is too difficult. Content management systems tend toward analytical organization of content by type, which means that as the types grow in number, the methods of connecting them become more complicated and labor-intensive (e.g. Create a new page, save; create a slideshow, save; create an image, save; associate the image with the slideshow, save; associate the slideshow to the page; save. etc.).Maintenance is too expensive over the long-term. The chances that you would want to change the layout — or even a small detail within a particular layout — after you've become accustomed to creating content is beyond high. It's practically a guarantee. But with 15-20 different templates, the cost of the developer's work to implement that change could be way out of scale with what you expect to pay.
