Join us on Planet ZikMe !

Hi all,

We’d like to present you something that we’re pretty proud of: ZikMe now has a face, which fits exactly its spirit : the planet of music!

We’ve been working with a few graphists, testing a bunch of ideas, trying more fonts than we ever seen in our whole lives. This was a tricky work. Indeed, it was easy to go on a music note to create a logo. But, as our main point here is the encyclopedia, it had to make ZikMe feel “universal”.

That is done, and we’d really like to thank LogTek for his incredible work here. After a few tests, we finally managed to make it clear, meaningfull, and actually … pretty cool !

zikme-v2-black-orange-BOXWe would also like to thank Ututkusumadhata, who kindly created a few logos, which were actually pretty amazing too. His tips and advices were more than helpful.

We hope you like it as much as we do, and we welcome all comments about it !

Cheers

The blog is now live!

We’re really excited to announce that the blog is now officially live!

This blog is made 100% for you, and we really hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as we enjoy writing it.

It’s a place where we discuss the evolutions we’re making on ZikMe, or the (breathtaking!) features we’re releasing. We also discuss topics, like music genre, or how we’re trying to integrate sensitivity into the system. As some points may be controversial, we may add polls to reach a consensus. Poll results will have a direct impact on ZikMe.org music database, so get involved!

For now, we’ll mostly be in France, but we’re moving this summer, and we don’t know where to yet! We’ll keep our location updated, so if you’re around, send us a email to grab a beer and talk about the project!

In short :

  • Big news about ZikMe are here!
  • You are more than welcome to participate, give us feedbacks or share your musical expertise.

Feel free to send us an email at contact@zikme.org.

Also, we’d be very grateful if you’d help us spread the word about ZikMe: share it on Twitter, Facebook or G+. Thanks!

Cheers
