Why a text based design?

We talk about design a lot. We love great looking sites and we also love ones that are designed to work incredibly well.

The issue with a pixel perfect fancy designed site is the same issue that a lot of people have with shiney new things…they are afaid to get them scratched and dirty.

So the reason why we wanted this site to be a simple basic e-zine style is so that we don’t get scared to post.

We want to show the real build process…and it’s messy. If we were usign Medium or a fancy wordpress template, we would be less likely to post imperfect screenshots and half baked ideas.

The lack of design gives us the freedom to use this as a true workshop where we can try things out, experiement and iterate on ideas.
