DESIGN



The textual and visual elements of

STILL YESTERDAY

were given equal attention when designing the platform.

The platform’s name references neoliberalism’s saturation with itself, its intentional stagnation and fascination with the retro, particularly the advent of its ideology, the 1980s. In this cultural and economic paradigm, it’s always the past, always yesterday. The clock present on every page and social post forefronts this time-bound experience.

The site’s

DEBASE

section is named after the systematic approach taken by the platform to replace existing power structures in culture, politics and economics. To enact change, the existing base of exploitation needs to be replaced, onto which more equitable social and economic relations can be built.

Visually, the site embraces digital brutalism and anti-design. The

HTML

default typefaces of Times New Roman and Arial are paired with

RGB

green, alongside obscure images. The platform also slows down the web experience. Through overlapping content that users have to move, and large text sizes limiting readers’ periphery, a more paced experience is created.
