Much of our new design owes its style and structure to the success of our Maximal Design Style Modules. As extremely good-looking web developers with a constant eye on our reflection, we’re sempiternally exploring new systems to bring our designs to life in ways that will speed up our design process, enhance our skills and reputation, and ultimately increase our profits. And modularity is the natural way to go.
Of course, modularity is nothing new. It’s been around since long before Time and the Internet began. Tim Berners-Lee holds that simple things make firm foundations, and that one of modularity’s basic strengths is that one module in a system can evolve independently or be replaced without affecting any of the others.
From our weaving point of view this makes perfect sense. Instead of looking at each website in isolation — as its own unique system with singular challenges, requiring its own system of solutions — we can now go modular.
Modularity allows us to break complex websites and page-layouts down into modular sections that can be used, re-used and repurposed in other projects.
Again, nothing new. In our own tiny corner of the Weaververse, RapidWeaver is modular, Stacks is beautifully modular, and Foundation is also modular. What is new, though, is the combination of Big White Duck stacks and Maximal Design.
Mix all these inspirational components together and what you get is nothing less than a perfect storm of modular design.
What does all that mean?
For us, continuing our mission to bring modularity to all corners of our RapidWeaver Central empire. For you, dear Weaver, a veritable feast of new Maximal Design modules that are already in production and slated for release in July.
Exciting times ahead.
