Dear visitor,
welcome to Design Islands!

Explore a world of failed concepts and projects gone wrong, wild iterations, forgotten illustrations, lessons learned, small tips and short reviews.

Let our quests inspire you and our gems guide you. If you pay close attention, you might come across a snapshot or two from designers' everyday life.

Now go and brave the Design waters!


Design Islands is an internal publishing platform created by Infinum. The homepage is an infinite canvas with a map of islands — each island in the category is a post published by a designer. Visitors can freely explore, pan the map and look for new islands.

The idea for this project appeared when we realized a lot of the design we do on projects just ends up buried in Google Drive folders. Additional motivation was to show the whole design process that occurs behind the scenes of creating a product.

Most often we see polished case studies with all-star reviews, but what about everything that happened on the way?
