This video describes the circular design concept for the domain keychain search engine we invented in 2010.
P&G owns the domain pg.com. When I email someone at that domain, I’m actually emailing someone in P&G. When I email someone at charmin.com, I’m still emailing someone at P&G.
Domain keychains are powerful things. They can connect the dots between the intel that you have on individuals across an organization using their email domains as an identifier. There’s a lot of theory behind what could be done by connecting the dots between a company. Here is what the 2010 version of myself has to say about it.
The circular design was a creative risk that panned out quite well. People really liked & remembered it.
I also wanted to use pencil illustrations for the art on the website. Here is what one of the web pages for our site might have looked like.
