After a few months of online work, Diplo’s Creative Lab team met in Geneva. We locked ourselves in a room for three days (20‒22 May) to further advance the development of  Digital Watch in preparation for the launch of the Alpha version at the end of the June.

If you want to receive updates on our progress, please subscribe to the GIP mailing list.

Creativity often involves a lot of tension and, sometimes, heated debate. Today, our heated debate centred on the graphical style for icons to be used on the Digital Watch website. The discussion was very interesting reflecting the dilemmas of modern graphical design and visual culture.

On one side, traditionalists argued for the use of Diplo’s hand-drawn illustrations, saying they  provide a human touch in a generally uniform Googlish material design where most websites look like one another.
