Straight and Minimalist Graphic Design

Graphic design studio Alonglongtime created the campaign identity for Solidarity Collective Collaboration. The work includes the creation of a logo, pictograms, a custom typeface and promotional posters. I really like the minimalism in this work. It shows that it doesn’t need much to create a unique and eye catching visual identity. The only use of simple, graphic shapes makes it special. A well example to emphasize the old slogan: “less is more”.

Tumblrize is EOL

Hi there,

Well after three years of free satisfaction and 20k users later, the road to maintain a good Wordpress plugin just got bumpier.

Users started asking questions and sending support requests. Tumblr had changed its API from v1 to v2, bringing a more secure way for their developer community and users to post stuff on their platform.

Naturally, Tumblr also started deprecating their v1 API thus making tumblrize useless for most of the install base.

I started this plugin right after Tumblr’s rise. I couldn’t make a choice between them and Wordpress. So I started working on something. Without any need for recognition, my plugin became the first to be able to cross-post to Tumblr. I was very proud to see it grow back then, and being referenced by Tumblr as example app for their API.
I had fun spending hours designing its poor logo on Fireworks.

Then I had something else to focus on. I switched jobs, switched again, and Meitar came to the rescue as for long needed updates. He helped a lot cleaning the code and adding new features.

Long-story short: neither do I (because of time and skills) nor Meitar (because of time) have time to update it. I wrote to a guy who pulled it from the Wordpress plugins repository.

I wish I could have answered all the questions or pushed a “thank you but it’s broken” message to those who were using it.

Thanks to Meitar for helping out and Mark@Tumblr for promoting it.

Tumblrize, out.
