A look at the redesign of Cubify

Cubify is platform that makes 3D printing accessible to the masses, it’s the much needed connection between everyday consumers and the wonders of 3D printing. Since 3D printing itself is becoming easier everyday with nifty inventions like the Cube, the bottleneck now is the content. So that’s where Cubify.com comes in, with it’s ready to print content, interactive apps and creative partners. The platform was launched January 10th 2012 with a big bang at the CES in Las Vegas. Since then I’ve been working closely together with our team of platform developers, content creators and app developers to improve the design and usability of Cubify. In this article I’ll cover some of the first improvements made to the platform.

Landing page

The landing page of any website is of incredible value, as it needs to pitch to the visitor what it’s all about, and try to grab their attention in a mather of seconds. When you’re introducing a new platform, with a new machine and new interactive apps & content – this is all but easy. For Cubify’s landing page we decided to focus on presenting the Cube firstly, and secondary are Apps, Partners & Content. Use the slider below to see before and after the redesign.
