Launched in May of 2009, FPO: For Print Only publishes highly detailed posts of greatly designed print projects by designers around the world. The web site, while it has its own visual flair, is designed to make the project overview, production details and imagery of each project the center of attention. Like the rest of our blogs, FPO runs on Movable Type and takes advantage of its “Custom Fields” feature to provide easy input of the varied information through the content management system while reflecting a consistent set of facts in the front end.
Initially launched in April of 2003 as a feature of our Speak Up blog, Word It is a monthly challenge for our audience to visually interpret a specific word we select; there are no limitations and it is not uncommon to receive over one hundred submissions in a single month. Over the course of 66 months and words we had amassed more than 4,400 submissions and decided to spin-off Word It into its own blog in March of 2009.
Opposites Attract ’08 is a four-part series of events, hosted at the Art Directors Club of New York, that UnderConsideration has ideated, curated and programmed. Opposites Attract brings together designers with differing paths, distinct backgrounds, assorted abilities, and unique approaches that, ultimately, strive for the same goal: simply, to produce great work.
New York University School of Law — one of the top five law schools in the country (U.S.News & World Report) — has been working on a significant update to their main web site for the past year that will focus on the academic and administrative aspects of their institution. We developed and designed a “mini site” that highlights the life outside of the classroom and serves as a lighthearted view of the school.
Quipsologies, launched in January of 2007, is bent on keeping the design community aware of as many things as possible through an ever-growing cluster of creativity found on- and off-line. Quipsologies acknowledges that there is strength in numbers and in individual interests… everyone is invited and encouraged to add theirs — Quipsologies was born as a response to the increasing source of creativity found online and the desire to bring the most relevant to our readers.
Brand New, launched in 2005, is devoted solely to the monitoring, discussion and critique of brand and corporate identity work in all its manifestations and across all categories — Brand New grew out of the popularity of reviewing rebranding efforts on Speak Up and it now covers an even broader range of work as a dedicated site.
The Design Encyclopedia, launched in September of 2003, is a user-built source of reference material with the sole intention of defining, describing, chronicling and documenting the world through design in all its implications and manifestations, from cars, to burgers, to movies, even to logos — it was built on the need for cataloguing the impact of design in our lives.
