Goodbye Fiftytwo

Goodbye Fiftytwo by Daniel Howells

Fiftytwo was an experiment in creating a professional network for creatives whose constraint was the ability to post just one piece of work (new, or work-in-progress) every week.

_______

It was my take on the “slow web” movement; a response to the deluge of Twitter posts where meaningful work updates got lost in the noise.

_______

7,975 registered users, superb design work posted, connections established between creatives, closed and private, meaningful feedback..

What went wrong???

Startup fail.

_______

_______

Daniel Howells is a London-based web designer/developer, founder/editor of siteinspire.com

Whitestone is???

Whitestone is the first platform for interactive music experiences. A place to create, collect, and truly experience music online. This is what what music will look like in the future!

_______

We are a group of artists, designers and programmers with a vision to bring album art to the internet, using the medium to create special interactive editions of albums and videos.

Streaming is just the beginning, we want to take it a step further.

_______

ndlr: New logo exploration

_______

Goodbye BKSGE, welcome Whitestone. Or why the change of name took place – so late in the game.

The platform concept, business model and interactive functionalities as well as ui/ux design, all remain the same.

Dieter Rams interview

>Dieter Rams interviewed by Gary Hustwit, an excerpt (worth reading) from Helvetica/Objectified/Urbanized: The Complete Interviews as published by Fast Company.

_______

Dieter Ram design philosophy in 10 points:

Good design is innovative.
Good design must be useful.
Good design is aesthetic design.
Good design makes a product understandable.
Good design is honest.
Good design is unobtrusive.
Good design is long-lasting.
Good design is consistent in every detail.
Good design is environmentally friendly.
And last but not least, good design is as little design as possible.

_______

This reference book – is a must in your library: Less and More. The Design Ethos of Dieter Rams. A new re-edition can be pre-ordered.

Hence, where the Less is more quote and design principle comes from. Never forget how much we owe this creative giant.

Type of Letters
