JoyEngine was created in 2005 to highlight good work and serve as a source of creative inspiration. Driven by an author/contributor base of like-minded creative professionals, the site is in a state of perpetual change, occasionally pausing to call attention to noteworthy ideas, individuals, and endeavors.
As JoyEngine enters its fifth year it hopes to continue to inspire, inform, and ultimately promote positive change in the world. The JoyEngine team holds the belief that access to information is one of the many factors limiting ideation and innovation. With this ideal in mind, JoyEngine strives to function as a platform for the exchange and the utilization of information.
While the content of JoyEngine spans a range of subject matter from graphic design to technology, from indy DIY fashion to contemporary art, from global events to local politics, it’s all bound by a collective consciousness. This collective consciousness shares the belief that change, while often challenging, is inevitable. That change is good and that change leads to progress – whether it be in the arts or in politics or in your own neighborhood.
Thinking for a Living 3.0
Our good friends over at Thinking for a Living have just launched the 3rd iteration of their online presence. Flipping the site on its side and applying a strick columnar layout, TFAL 3.0 is a great example of how media should be consumed online. Read this post by Frank Chimero describing the thinking and features behind the new site. Congrats to BBDK (Duane, Shane and Bob), Frank Chimero and Ian Coyle, you guys knocked this one out of the park.
It should be noted that the mobile version of TFAL is most likely the best mobile website online right now (maybe better than the site on a full monitor)…
