Introducing the stream


Since its inception, back in 2009, Minimalissimo has been primarily a chronologically organized website.

You open the site’s homepage—or one of the categories—and new content is waiting for you at the top. Start scrolling down the page and you travel back in time. Publishing time that is.

That’s clearly not something original or something we invented. That’s how functionally almost all sites on the web work. Every feed, every archive, every list always has new content at the top, old content at the bottom.

Scrolling through the homepage and within categories in chronological order is not the only way to browse the site though: searching is another way to traverse the Minimalissimo archive. Searching—and this is true for Minimalissimo but also for sites in general—requires some level of intentionality. You have to know what you’re looking for in order to search through it.

But what if you come to Minimalissimo to get inspired? What if you have an appreciation for minimal design and you simply want to immerse yourself in the content? What if the goal is not to search anything specifically, but rather to stumble on something you didn’t know you were looking for?

My attempt to tackle that specific problem is the new /stream. The stream is another way to browse the Minimalissimo archive and its goal is to make it easier to resurface old content that would otherwise be lost in a strictly chronological archive.

It’s not something wildly original. You’ll still find yourself scrolling through a page like any normal website but inside the stream you’ll find all the images posted on the site since 2009, without extra information to distract you.

And to make the whole experience a bit more fun and to encourage you to come back to the section every now and again the order of the content is randomised daily.

The stream is currently not linked anywhere on the site but you can give it a try and let me know what you think.

This is just the first in a series of small changes I plan to make to the site the slowly improve the browsing experience.

I’d love to know your thoughts on the stream and also on how we navigate websites in general so hit me up at
