Critical Daily is an interactive and participatory project for graphic designers that can be customized and self-published. It is a blogzine and open archive that allows to browse, search, comment and add content related to critical practice created by graphic designers. It brings information about what designers think and how they visually reflect the world they live in.
Critical projects are displayed as articles or posts. They are ranked according to an algorithm called CriticalMeter that helps us count how critical they are and can be customized by personal preferences. The innovative aspect is also the ability to publish the current state of the blog in a zine layout. It is an unique functionality, that enables designers upon their custom preferences to build their own post-digital archive.
Importance of this project is in the participation of graphic designers (adding content), the social impact (building community of designers as citizens and commentators), the historical and theoretical significance (prove of design transformation in media society).
