Utilizing photography, an individual can interpret any subject and express it into something completely defiant of all that is real. In Martin Hernandez’s projeqt, we are presented with a series of photographs, which at first emanate from conceptual thoughts, but then intertwine with fashion. Compiled of color and black & white, these photographs allow the viewer to evoke differing states of emotion, sensitivity, and reactions reminiscent to surrealistic thoughts.
Fiction is one of the most reveled forms of writing in literature. It is here that readers and writers find themselves enthralled into a world of creativity where dreams and fantasies become reality and in which the only limit is wherever your mind can take you. Through Felicia Spahr’s projeqt, we are given access to her thoughts and observations of life and the drama behind everyday situations through the eyes of fictional characters. It’s a series of stories that, once read, will leave you with a sense of reflection and inspiration.
We’ve tried to make it simpler and easier to create projeqts, so we’ve bucketed the choices you get when adding content to basic, advanced and theme options. You’ll find these options as tabs in the pop-up that shows when you add or edit content.
The basic options are the essential choices you need to make when adding in content, e.g. what image do I want to upload or what is the URL of the YouTube video I want to add. This is the absolute minimum requirement of adding any piece of content. As you’ll find that often means just making one or two choices.
The advanced options are all the bells and whistles you could imagine having in a particular slide type. Typically you’ll find things like the option to create an outbound link, the cropping selections of images, the option to upload a background image, the info field, which can have a lot in-depth information about the piece of content in question to things that are specific to certain content types.
Theme specific options are things that link to the way you’ve selected your projeqt to be displayed. Say for example in the tile theme, you can select if a piece of content is displayed in a small or medium size. If this menu is not applicable for your view, it will not show up.
Are you interested in the history of advertising in Argentina? Do you want to brush up on your Spanish? Do you want to see a picture of a green hippo? If you answered “yes” to any of the above, you should check out our projeqt of the week, which comes from the AAP, which is the Advertising Association of Argentina. It’s a beautiful collection of ads, logos and stories from the years celebrating all the wonderful work done by generations past.
In addition to the six font themes you can already choose from, we thought you’d like a few more options to give you greater customization of your projeqt. So we added 500 more fonts for you to choose from.
When you are editing your projeqt, just go to “theme editor” and “fonts” to select your custom header and body copy fonts.
Sorry, we can’t help you with the indecision over which ones to try first!
When we launched the tile layout a couple of weeks ago, we promised more to follow soon after. Well, we’re happy to announce another new layout option and a bunch of updates that make making projeqts even easier.
So here goes…
We’ve made it a lot simpler to add new content to your projeqt. Now, just drag a new slide of your choice from the panel on the left-hand side of the admin, drop it where you want to place the slide and add your content.
Vertical layout option:
The vertical layout is the latest layout option that we have added, in additional to the original horizontal layout and the new tile layout. This one works well with editorial type content, when you want to emphasize that the freshest content is always on top. This may look similar to many of the blogging platforms out there, but the benefit of using projeqt is that you can pull in live content from many 3rd party services and continue to organize the content in stacks, which makes it a lot more powerful that your run-of-the-mill blog.
You can also add text information to any slide now. This is useful for photo captions, video credits or narrating a particular slide, with more flexibility than a title alone. On most themes, the user can see the additional info by clicking the info button under the slide, but on the vertical layout the text will always be visible, allowing the you to give more background and context to your slide.
New sharing options:
Every slide can now be individually shared to Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or LinkedIn. The sharing options will be shown under the slide. This means your visitors can share a particular location or slide within your projeqt. And it will probably encourage sharing in general, which will mean more eye-balls on your projeqt.
Sign up with Facebook and Twitter:
This makes life easy for people signing up. All you need to do is to click on the Facebook or Twitter buttons to create an account on projeqt. So go tell your friends to sign-up.
We have some big news: You can now set your projeqt to be viewed in a tile-based layout by selecting it in the layout section of your projeqt’s “design options”. This is a great way of showing lots of content to the user on the very first glimpse of a projeqt.
Each piece of content can be shown in either a small or medium size simply by changing a setting in the content’s properties. Users can click into stacks which appear as a new tile layout, or click on individual pieces of content to see them in a large-format overlay. Kind of reminds us of a service that rhymes with… um… ginterest.
Let us know if you switch your projeqt over to the tile layout by sending us an email at email@example.com or tweet with the hashtag #myprojeqt. We promise to feature the coolest ones. And look for additional layouts for your projeqts in the very near future.
Art has a wide spectrum of form and design. One of these forms comes by way of hair & make-up. Utilizing projeqt, Cynthia Schippers uses our story-telling platform to showcase the equilibrium between her hair and make-up styles, whilst also showing how mood, setting and fashion can be an influence or cause of such styles. Projeqt can be a great tool to use when making a lookbook and we’re glad that Cynthia chose our platform to express her craft.
We’re happy to announce that Projeqt has been selected to feature in Google’s Creative Sandbox as one of a handful of examples on how to creatively use digital mediums. The idea behind the sandbox is to provide creative industries some inspiration by showing best-in-class case studies, so that they can in turn come up with cooler ways of using what the web (and Google) has to offer.
Obviously this is all very humbling, but the nicest part of the site is an option for the audience to vote if they think something is cool, smart or fun – so if you like using Projeqt, please check it out and give us your vote.
Here at projeqt headquarters, we’ve been working hard to improve your experience when using projeqt. This next batch of improvements now makes it even easier to create and share your own projeqts. Furthermore, these improvements are now LIVE.
Stacks are now marked with a plus sign that expands when the mouse hovers over the cover slide. Your viewers can now easily see that they can click to view even more content within the stack.
View Selector Tab
We’ve now moved the view selector tab to the top bar. This allows your content to stand out even more while still having the option to toggle between linear, grid, and presentation mode, plus fullscreen in modern browsers.
Who doesn’t check out projeqts on their mobile devices? A lot of time has been spent on making your mobile experience as fast and smooth as possible. We feel you’ll love the way your projeqts function on your mobile devices.
Your projeqt now scales according to screen size, making your text, images, video, and any other content, look even better in any size or any projector.
With a more human and search engine friendly URL structure, projeqts are now easier to find and link to. slides have their own address, so linking any part of projeqt can be done with ease.
Have more than one projeqt? We now link directly to your profile page, allowing your audience to browse all your other projeqts. Your profile page contains your bio, social links, and all your publicly available projeqts.
With these improvements, not only does your creativity and content further stand out, but your projeqts are able to reach more viewers as well.
Feedback is a big part of making all of this happen. Feel free to send suggestions or comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
