Over the past months I have been disappointed in the number of Industrial Design posts and articles on the Core77 main page. It appears that the extraneous inspirational content far outnumbers the true Industrial Design content.
- I often find myself turning to sites like Uncrate and NotCot for the latest product inspiration, these are great sites but often lack the focus on design that Core77 could contribute. Maybe there could be a product of the week that features a very detailed review on the form, materials and design philosophy, similar to what Andrew Kim is doing over at http://www.minimallyminimal.com/
- There are a several articles written a few years back that I still reference today, the periodic table of form, TDK Ziba Boombox , Nasa studio, and frog Mobia, these articles were exceptional at showing real work and process – which produced phenomenal results. Its these types of articles that have a practical effect on my workday.
I understand we need outside influences but we also can’t forget the product (digital and physical)
I really enjoy the Core77 brand and its established infrastructure, and don’t want to change my homepage but sometimes I feel like its lacking.
Am I missing something or are their others that feel this way?
