Tapestry is a lovely site for making digital stories. When we talk about the power of minimal design, what I like about Tapestry is the simplicity of the storytelling, for both the writer and for the reader. The ability to set up “taps” creates a certain rhythm of the story. The simple fonts and background options at first seem limiting but then you realize how powerful that can be not to worry about bells and whistles, and instead, focus on the story itself. I am taking part in a storytelling contest Tapestry is launching, with stories on the theme of “Life is Beautiful.”
Here is what I created:
What makes life beautiful for you?
Peace (in reflection),
By the way, I could not find a space on Tapestry for citing where the images came from, so I will do that here. All images are part of Flickr’s Creative Commons library:
- Chaos image comes from Davide de Cole
- Solitude comes from Martin Fischer
- Silence flower comes from Polpolux
- Silence comes from Isaac Leedom
Thanks to all of them for creating such great images.
