Best Practices

  • Overall beautiful design
  • Great trick using the shapes to trigger actions to other sheets
  • Excellent incorporation of instructions throughout
  • On the jukebox view, I really like what he did with the timeline and artist images
  • Embedding the songs is pretty slick!
  • The artist earnings view is simple, yet quite beautiful. Incorporating the images really makes a big difference.

Recommended Enhancements:

  • Some of the text is really small, making it hard for my old eyes to read
