Unless your entire social circle was under a rock yesterday, you’ve already seen Facebook Timeline. But what’s most interesting to me is seeing the influence of two notable designers, Tom Watson and Nicholas Felton, craft and shape this refined concept.
Many designers likely had a hand in this, I recognize that. But consider Tom Watson’s Level & Tap, a site with a focus on impressive — and impressively large — images. Then consider Nicholas Felton’s Feltron Annual Reports. Put the two together and it’s clear where the influence originated from.
And if there were any doubts about that influence, Tom’s tweet yesterday should clear things up:
It should be clear now why we hired @feltron. It’s been a blast designing it.
Side note: Dustin Curtis’ Lifepath.me app is for sale on eBay as a result of yesterday’s announcement.
