Sexy Myspace Redesign Makes Some Wish They Didn’t Delete Their Account in 2008 | Digital – Advertising Age

See on Scoop.itEye on concepts

Myspace is getting a redesign that — dare we say it — is making facebook look like it was designed by a kid in a college dorm room.

As others have pointed out, it’s borrowing a lot from Pinterest and Windows 8, but mostly it just looks fresh, original and interesting, despite the gratuitous profile pics of Mr. Timberlake.

The design and function is attempting to appeal to the last known segment that still pines for the Myspace of old: the music industry. The company’s label deals are still in place, and it scored a coup yesterday when a judge ruled that Apple couldn’t trademark its music icon because it could confuse consumers with the one for Myspace.

A while ago, I tasked Kate Irwin and Paul Hebron with following up the 1st Edition premium rulebooks with a similar product line from the 3.5 Edition era. Although the guts of the 3.5 books were much easier to handle (because we have all the digital files), we found it challenging to create a cover that made the product stand out from the initial releases but that also didn’t change the look so much that the product was not identifiable as a 3.5 Edition product.

This collaborative art project for London’s Tate Modern uses Google products and services and showcases the power of Chrome. 

Inspired by the surrealist game Exquisite Corpse and its idea of collaborative creation, the project lets users create short animations that build off one another as they explore a specific theme. The result is a collection of branching tree-like narratives that can be contributed to by anyone.
