Juts to share my opinion based on my experience that is different from most....
usually a release takes time, from a design/marking POV we used to have long
conversations about the key messaging, the spirit of the thing what are the
selling points, etc etc... It was a alot of work, so much that I started
grouping the work in chunks of 2 example the wallpaper is new replace every 2
releases... The problem is that its just to much, I take alot of time maturing
a design concept that is scalable, and this process is many times painful.
sooo please no it dilutes the marketing work..
