DADI Microservices

Web services stack, built around a microservices architecture.


Born out of the CMS project behind Monocle.com, I was instrumental in the development of the core ideas behind the suite of micro-services.

My development and design focus was Web (the front-end service) and Publish (the CMS) where I contributed regularly to the Node.js based application (such as the debug view feature). I also branded the entire line up which included - a restful API, queue and an image manipulation service, amongst others.

The full suite of logos created for DADI.
Animated hero image I art directed working with artist Daniel Savage.
We explored various new ways to edit content.

DADI was used by a variety of high-profile clients including Virgin, Bauer and Haymarket where I oversaw the implementation and also design of sites such as Empire Magazine and WhatCar?.

The DADI logo I designed in Times Square.

DADI is sadly no longer maintained, but you the GitHub repos are still live and you can read some of the old articles I wrote - such as integrating with Contentful or authenticating with DADI API.
