For makers of products & seekers of meaning. Every new publication is a glimpse into a new possible future, a fascination for a world that might be. It represents the inability to accept the present as is—a reflection of, and a desire for, change. What we don’t realize is that by focusing on numbers, we are teaching newcomers that having a large following is equivalent to a successful career. But you can’t build critical thinking if you’re stuck with quantitative metrics. We don’t have a minimum of stories we’re trying to publish, and we intentionally do not have a business plan in place for this project. All we know is that we’re stepping aside from the rat race, from the numbers game — and that DOC won’t have any quantitative goals. We will publish essays, arguments, and narratives about the bigger impact of design in our lives. This won’t be a news site with tutorials or industry gossip. We will publish stories worth publishing and we will keep ideas worth keeping. Everything else is noise. We will pause. We will breathe. We will assimilate. Above all, we will seek meaning. We will go back to documenting the world of design through the lens of curiosity and awe.If you’re interested in content like this, join us as a reader, writer, supporter, follower, friend. We want to hear your voice. We want to share this journey with you. DOC is also a platform to experiment with what is next. Instead of paywalls or centralized accounts, DOC is experimenting with Web Monetization, an open, native, efficient, and automatic way to compensate creators, which is being proposed as a W3C standard at the Web Platform Incubator Community Group. We’re always searching for value and meaning in new possibilities. As such, DOC was conceived as a starting point for the future web3 for content and community building.DOC is made with purpose by Fabricio Teixeira, Caio Braga, Manoel do Amaral, Fabi Nakasone, Isa Marques, Rafael Frota, Glauber Sampaio, and anyone else who wants to find meaning in making. » Read More
