Rethinking Collections by danlev Rethinking Collections by danlev
Objective: Allow users to create a beautiful, share-worthy curation of artwork in seconds without adding much functionality to the Collections feature.

Users would be able to select a deviation as the Collection's "cover image." This action would send the artist a notification that their work was featured as the cover of someone's collection.

I create a lot of Collections and I'm proud them, but I never feel like they're refined curations of art, mostly because of the look of the pages. I wanted to rethink Collections to make them feel more presentable, and something curators will feel proud of, rather than just dumping images into a folder.

This is just a quick concept design of how I'd reimagine Collections.

Rather it a css then a permanent thing.

I like it, however I wonder how it would handle descriptions longer than your short sentence? And what would the display be like if you chose not to have a cover image? Would the description and info just sit at the top unboxed/contained in any manner?

Mostly, the main thing I want for collections is a button that lets you apply the same skin for every one. It's a bit of a pain to go through and put the skin into every collection when you have a lot, especially when you have to deal with that "CSS is for advanced users, are you sure you want to use it?!1?!11" pop up almost every time.

hmm it seems a little bit too Facebook for me, but it would also help make collections more presentable.  Hm.

Yeah, looks cool! Would be awesome if there were sub-collection folders too. :love:
