Remodeling Dynamic Diagrams
By Tim Roy
In the coming weeks, you will see a number of changes at Dynamic Diagrams. You may have already noticed the increase in our blogging activity here on Information Design Watch. We now have an active Facebook and Twitter presence and myself and other team members are working to add useful and interesting content to these channels as regularly as possible.
There will also be modifications to our web site. Dynamic Diagrams has been on the web since the mid-1990s. The earliest shot I could find using the Wayback Machine was from 1996:
We are setting off in a new direction with the goal of simplifying our online presence and incorporating the powerful social media tools that allow us to keep the content fresh and provide useful information for clients and fans alike. We also want to be able to showcase more of our work – some of the classic user experience diagrams, the early visualizations done for companies such as Netscape, and our more recent video and interactive pieces.
While this will not turn into a reality TV event, we will keep you updated as this process evolves so that you can “peek over our shoulders” as we work. I will provide some behind-the-scenes insights into how decisions were made, some of the ideas we consider and reject, and how it feels to be our own client. I hope you enjoy watching this unfold and seeing the results once they are complete.
yep, I think that one looks like the very first design that was put up back in the last century. I believe that one did not last long, either. people want to see content not a cover.
