August 27, 2008

Zazzle has launched skateboards! Now you can create or customize professional quality skateboards with your own text, photos, designs and more! Developed in collaboration with Andy Howell, former pro skateboarder and founder of ARTSPROJEKT, a unit of Zazzle, custom skateboards are produced within 24 hours of ordering, and feature North American Maple decks with a patent-pending printing process that produce the most AMAZING vibrant imagery. Check out some of my favorite skateboards that have already been created in the Marketplace (shown at EXTREME HUGE view to show off the detail).

Where was I going? Oh yeah…I’ve got map shoes!

August 20, 2008

So I am totally in love with Zazzle custom shoes and the amazing designs that come out of the community every day. If you haven’t checked out some of the designs like these vintage shoes, patriotic shoes, or geek shoes then you are really missing out. But one of the great things about Zazzle is seeing the off-the-wall-never-would-have-thought-of-that-in-a-thousand-years designs like MAP SHOES?! What a great idea! Say you’re lost, just look down! Need to give directions, just give ‘em your shoe! The uses are endless! Thanks to geoblogger for bring this wonderful idea to light and I’ve got to say that the rest of the community likes the idea too because there is a huge collection of map shoes on Zazzle now. See some of my favorites below.

Now, all we need is a Zazzler that can create a dynamic map shoe generator. Just imagine it, put in your location and out come shoes with your local map, you’ll never be lost again! Anyone that wants to do it let me know and I’ll post your Zazzle map shoe buildin’ API to the blog to share with everyone!


Welcome to the New Zazzle!

August 19, 2008

Zazzle has launched its new look! Last night we launched a new look and a new logo that is simple, bold and a whole lot more. See below for the complete note from our Creative Director on why we did it:

As a commerce re-defining platform, Zazzle is much less interested in promoting itself than it is in promoting our users and the content they generate. This overhaul of Zazzle’s identity is intended to create a brand that allows us to step back from the limelight so that your content takes the center stage.

Our new, subdued black and white color scheme is neutral, friendly, inclusive and kind of hip (just enough that it won’t turn anyone away). We chose this clean and simple aesthetic to let the colors and beauty of your original content really pop off the page. You might even think of this new site as a kind of empty coloring book and your products as the crayons.

Our new logo is also simple and bold. We designed it to look a little bit like a copyright © or registered trademark ® symbol, because we want you to think of the Zazzle logo as a kind of trademark symbol you might slap down next to your own brand as a way to let the world know that Zazzle’s got your back. We will ensure the best consumer experience and retail quality products for all of your designs.

Some of the key descriptive words we used internally when working on this new brand included simple, clean, trustworthy, strong, universal, and unique. We hope you agree with the intent and like the results.

Everyone at Zazzle loves the new look and we hope you like it too! If you’ve got comments, questions or just wonder who exactly Zazzle Greg is, feel free to drop a comment in the Zazzle forums to get a discussion started!
