- Wanted information.
- Saw the sign up for more info.
- Closed the tab.
Thank you for typing this out for me.
- Is this a new prototyping tool?
- Is it a podcast about design process?
- Is it a free ui kit?
- Is it a job board for remote front-end developers?
- Is it a tool that converts sketch files into macromedia flash format?
- Is it a newsletter about how flat design has ruined your life?
- Is it a series of essays about the 'UX trends' of 2017?
- Is it an unsolicited redesign of Dribbble with less stupid comments?
- Is it an experiment to find out how many people will sign up to an empty, pretty landing page?
I kinda want to know, but not enough to give you my email address.
When you sign up, the first email you get has a link to an article he wrote about his thoughts/reasons for maybe doing something like this ... gives some more insight I think :)
"You can read more about our media philosophy in this essay written by our CEO and editor-in-chief Joshua Topolsky"
Great article, all of this is so true (after having worked at Conde Nast). I wouldn't have signed up just from that landing page, I can't say the design was that intriguing, but have definitely signed up after reading the article.
Yes its an ambiguous CTA but I know anything produced by Josh is worth taking a chance on.
Pro-tip: when you look at http://theoutline.com on your mobile device, try tilting slightly. The live 3D is mapped to the gyroscope.
Beautiful, terrible design. They really expect anybody to sign up knowing literally nothing? What's the project about? Is it a new design tool? A new blog? A podcast? A revolutionary internet of things tool? A political movement? Another social network? An App?
WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT WHAT?! I might actually be inclined to register my interest if I knew what it was that I might be interested in.
