What I didn't know was how competent and kind the TED team would be.
I fell in love with the people and the company itself: the culture, the mission, everything they stand for. It's an amazing organization. The collaboration between our two teams was something I hadn’t seen before in my career. It helped changed the way I think projects should happen and influenced the unique and intense collaboration model we’re using at Work & Co now.
The new ted.com is simple, modern and responsive. It was designed to last and keeps video as the central part of the experience.
The “talk” page is obviously the most important part of the experience, and we spent a lot of time working on it. We included new features such as “watch later” and designed the page for multitasking. As you play the video and scroll, it keeps playing in a thumbnail on the top left, so you can engage with the rest of the page while still watching the video.
Also try clicking on “transcript.” It's pretty cool.
