Lisk, the blockchain application platform, today announced a collaboration with distinguished design agency Taikonauten, with the goal of rebranding its ecosystem to greatly enhance the user experience and facilitate even greater user adoption.
The partnership will enable the Lisk Foundation to employ the creative talents of the team at Taikonauten to entirely redesign crucial aspects of its platform, such as its logo, website, blockchain explorer and client user interface (including desktop and smartphone).
Taikonauten is a Berlin-based design agency whose goal is to shape the future of the Internet with its work. The company uses digital design to promote key brands, position products and create new opportunities for cutting-edge businesses.
As outlined in the Lisk Development Roadmap, this collaboration is part of Lisk’s resilience phase, which aims to build a more elegant core system, an even better Lisk SDK, deploy various useful features, design beautiful and easy user interfaces, and continue to put a major focus on security.
The overarching aim of the collaboration – which extends from March to August 2017 – is to create a unified experience for Lisk users. Taikonauten will overhaul Lisk’s corporate design, developing a new logo and media kit. In addition, it will also design and develop a new website for Lisk. Finally, user interfaces for Lisk’s desktop, mobile clients and blockchain explorer will also be crafted and designed by the agency.
“This collaboration will help the Lisk project more efficiently to communicate the goals of our platform. It will improve the user experience of the Lisk client to a level not seen before in the blockchain space, marking a first step for common user adoption, and unifying our whole ecosystem visually,” Lisk Foundation President Max Kordek said.
“Until now, Lisk has been concentrating its resources on the development of the back end. We have released many optimization, stability and security updates to date marking the significant progress the platform is making. Now, our attention moves to making visible changes to our current ecosystem,” added Kordek.
“Our vision, together with Lisk, is to increase the visibility of this important platform. We aim to keep user needs at the heart of our approach and to make Lisk even more accessible to regular Internet users,” said Maik Fahldieck, Founder and Managing Director of Taikonauten.
LSK, the cryptocurrency that underlies the Lisk platform, is currently worth over $30 million USD.
