maycontain

Side-project service which explores what social media for objects we love could be.

About

Working with long-time collaborator Paul Regan, we wanted to build out a digital product which catered to our own interests. The idea was to build a social media network around beautiful objects such as cars, watches, bicycles and guitars.

Concept

As the majority of the products which are treasured for generations are well-built, artisan products, we aimed Maycontain as a premium product, using dark colours which highlighted visual content throughout. I designed and built the entire product.

Results

Undertaking 100% of the production myself I found it an incredible useful exersice in areas of digital product development I usally do not have time to focus on - everything from setting up a Ubuntu hosting enviroment, to appropriately hashing passwords and deployment scripts.
