New Yahoo Logo
So I had 5 minutes free and decided to redesign the new Yahoo logo. To achieve the effect I had to use ‘bezel & emboss’ which is something that should NEVER BE USED ON TEXT. Yahoo has never looked more corporate and done less to represent what said onomatopoeia should invoke.
In all honesty, I don’t care but I thought this would be fun. Yahoo needs to do more than make a shit new logo and weather app.
To a TechBiker, a bicycle is more than just metal. It is more than spokes, frame, cogs and gears. To us, a bike is a friend, an accomplice, a comrade. On it/her/him we will ride 200 miles - some easy, some hard. Show your bike the respect it deserves with the hashtag #bikesup.
How can you…
It’s been just a little over 2 years since Mausi released they beautifully upbeat and summery track Sol which had us throwing off our clothes and running into the nearest lake to jostle amongst the glittery ripples. Throughout the track the words ‘Dance! Dance! Dance!’ are repeated; subliminally commanding us to move our bodies with a care - which leads us nicely onto their next order of the day: Move.
Move picks up where Sol left off but goes one step further with a killer groove and keys that sing in your favourite octave. It has the vibe of a decent dance track in which even the laziest of producers could roll out of bed, stick in some sub bass & be ready to tear up Miami by lunchtime.
As quantified data products continue to bleed out from the geekdom into the mainstream we are seeing more and more people tracking their every move. Whether that be running, cycling, skiing, walking or just generally jiggling limbs around in a frenzied effort to collect “fuel”. The amount…
Official Twitter USB stick. Perfect for any #deckhead
Pretty much everyone who heard Jakwob’s Fade and the subsequent remixes; fell in love. The vibe, the lyrics, the sentiment - it all gelled together so perfectly. Just when you think all the remixes had been released up pops another one. Normally the latter remixes of any tune rarely throw up anything new but this time I was pleasantly surprised.
This remix was by Sane Beats, an 18 year old producer from London who had completely stripped away the majority of the track leaving the raw bones jangling in the breeze like wind chimes. It’s the kind of track that even if you don’t like trap (or even know what it is) you can adopt it into your music collection quicker than Madonna on safari.
I’m delighted to announce that we’ve reached an agreement to acquire Tumblr!
We promise not to screw it up. Tumblr is incredibly special and has a great thing going. We will operate Tumblr independently. David Karp will remain CEO. The product roadmap, their team, their wit and irreverence will all remain the same as will their mission to empower creators to make their best work and get it in front of the audience they deserve. Yahoo! will help Tumblr get even better, faster.
Tumblr has built an amazing place to follow the world’s creators. From art to architecture, fashion to food, Tumblr hosts 105 million different blogs. With more than 300 million monthly unique visitors and 120,000 signups every day, Tumblr is one of thefastest-growing media networks in the world. Tumblr sees 900 posts per second (!) and 24 billion minutes spent onsite each month. On mobile, more than half of Tumblr’s users are using the mobile app, and those users do an average of 7 sessions per day. Tumblr’s tremendous popularity and engagement among creators, curators and audiences of all ages brings a significant new community of users to the Yahoo! network. The combination of Tumblr+Yahoo! could grow Yahoo!’s audience by 50% to more than a billion monthly visitors, and could grow traffic by approximately 20%.
In terms of working together, Tumblr can deploy Yahoo!’s personalization technology and search infrastructure to help its users discover creators, bloggers, and content they’ll love. In turn, Tumblr brings 50 billion blog posts (and 75 million more arriving each day) to Yahoo!’s media network and search experiences. The two companies will also work together to create advertising opportunities that are seamless and enhance user experience.
As I’ve said before, companies are all about people. Getting to know the Tumblr team has been really amazing. I’ve long held the view that in all things art and design, you can feel the spirit and demeanor of those who create them. That’s why it was no surprise to me that David Karp is one of the nicest, most empathetic people I’ve ever met. He’s also one of the most perceptive, capable entrepreneurs I’ve worked with. His respect for Tumblr’s community of creators is awesome, and I’m absolutely delighted to have him and his entire team join Yahoo!.
Both Tumblr and Yahoo! share a vision to make the Internet the ultimate creative canvas by focusing on users, design — and building experiences that delight and inspire the world every day.
