Review: Learn Something Everyday
I love interesting but pointless facts, and what could be better than a site which posts a new one everyday? To make it even better, it’s accompanied by a quirky illustration that are often humorous.
LearnSomethingEveryday is exactly that. Every day I visit and soak up its factual goodness. The more bizarre the better so I can randomly bore friends with pointless morsels of information. Apart from the facts, I love the illustrations. They’re simple, but work very well in creating a humorous visual of the fact.
The site is set up by a Manchester based design agency called Young. I think setting up a site like this is a fantastic way to promote the studio. It allows them to bring in an audience who would normally not be looking for graphic designers and from that opens up more potential of getting work. I’d like to think up something similar for myself. To be successful, it’d have to be something updated frequently (but not too frequently) to get repeat visitors, and be very quick to take in the information so that people don’t find it an effort visiting the website.
