Project review of Void
Although people want to write thousand-word posts on it, WordPress only provides them with a small, industrial-looking section of the screen on which to do it. This was evident when people began to use minimalistic text editors such as Byword and iAWriter and then imported their writing into WordPress. When people are buying a separate solution because they don’t like to use a free interface, it’s a sign that change is needed.
My research was slightly different this time around: since I was a WordPress user who had purchased Byword, I already knew the problems that my target market was facing. I also performed additional research on best practices, such as determining the ideal line length for reading and writing, and experimenting with Medium’s text editor.
- Typography Selection
- Customer and Market Research
- WordPress Plugin Development
- Video Editing
I created the entirety of Void, from its design, development, branding, typographic selection, to its landing page, video, and copywriting.
My Personal Experience with Void
Since installing Void, I’ve never needed to leave my browser to write WordPress posts. The average amount of words I’m able to write in a single sitting has nearly tripled.
Void is in beta and will be released to the public in February. I’m happy to provide you with the beta version if you’d like to try it out – just promise to give me feedback if you see things that I can fix or have suggestions.
