Alongside the launch of our spiffy new website, we have also articulated our mission to ‘humanize the web’. Albeit idyllic, the humanized web puts the needs of real people at its center. Each story, site, tool and experience are carefully, thoughtfully created by a skilled craftsperson. We believe the result is an increasingly connected, meaningful and artful world. We’re not the only ones with this aspirational view of technology.
Examples of human-friendly technology were recently on display in New York at an expo called ‘For Humankind’. The exhibition showcased eye-tracking glasses empowering quadriplegics, tablets connecting students from India and the US for cultural-exchange, a soccer ball generating electricity from 30 minutes of play, and more. Technology's ability to connect people and improve lives is evolving at an astounding rate. [Read 'For Humankind’ Expo Showcases Humanitarian Innovation for more.]
Domain7 is part of this movement. We believe in the transcendence of the web as a means...
Last week we launched a brand new Domain7.com. So many members of our team played a role in it—on both sides of the border and the continent—and it was a great exercise in self-discovery and collaboration. Here are a few things we really like about it:
1. A new mission (Humanize the Web!)
Domain7 began as a team of techies who built really great tools. Nowadays we do so much more. Our old tagline—“We are a Web Agency”—just doesn’t capture all we do. We’re storytellers, strategists, designers and problem solvers. At the core, we’re all trying to make the web more human.
2. Totally mobile
We’ve been saying it for ages, and doing it for our clients nearly as long—but it was time to code the talk. The web is always on the go and websites need to work just as well on mobile as they do on a desktop. The new Domain7 is fully responsive so it fluidly fits on mobile, tablet and desktop. Resize your browser to give it a whirl.
3. Real case studies
We’re proud of our work...
