I have recently helped to found a new design initiative called Design Deconstruct. I am one of the founding members and have designed the brand and directed the design of the website.
Design Deconstruct is a team review bank of websites of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds and purposes. These websites are hand-picked and critiqued by the Design Deconstruct authors. They deconstruct the website and give their professional opinion on particular aspects of the website. The reason for this is to increase the design mentality of web designers and to share the passion for design that all the DD authors hold.

Design Deconstruct is an initiative brought about by a group of individuals who are passionate about practical and clever design but dislike the divides present in most design communities. Why do standardistas ignore flash? Why do flash communities disrepect compliant design? Here, at DD, we try to break these community barriers and be inclusive to all design methods reviewing them with an open mind. Letâ€™s play nice.
DD does not simply review the practicalities of the web but also for the look, the feel and the energy that a websiteâ€™s persona gives off. Design deconstruct is not just a website. It is a disciplined thought process, a love for design, a lot of hard work and also a fantastic resource for what (we think) is good or bad. Please put in your opinion and create some banter - thatâ€™s why it's there. So get yourself down to Design Deconstruct and support the cause!
