So as some of you may know, or not know, I recently became a part owner of a little startup based in texas, I’m only a minority stakeholder/shareholder, but I am the new creative director for said startup. With that in mind, I am going to create a tangential series here on the designing of a search engine (from a GUI/interface perspective, not code, that I leave to Mike and Ramsey to discuss that end). Seekum for those of you not aware is a social search engine that uses continuous live user feedback to help refine the search queries you get from standard searches.Anyway, this is going to be a multi-part series, in each section/installment I will discuss the different parts of the site and why I chose to design it that way. I will also try and discuss the business reasons for each design choice as they become relevant.In the meantime, you can play around with the unstyled version of by clicking here.
