As you know, Decimononic has presence in many social media. We have active profiles in platforms like Delicious, Facebook, Flickr, Tumblr, Twitter, You Tube… where we do our best to engage with other users and contribute great value. Should this be surprising? We don’t think so, but we have been asked recently why we spend time sharing content that don’t seem to be directly related to our core activity.
The answer to this question is pretty simple. As we have always said, Decimononic was born as a creative challenge aimed at people who feel unique individuals. This means that…
- We are glad to find and share content related to our main sources of inspiration: retrofuturism, biomechanics, art-nouveau, ancient civilizations, XIX Century, industrial culture, steampunk, vintage… Just because we emphasize the power of the individual it doesn’t entail we can’t believe in the concept of community. In fact we are absolutely convinced that our vision is going to be shared by many others like us, many others that value the singularity of every human being.
- We do think that Decimononic is becoming much more than a collection of particular artisan pieces. We are convinced that it is going to arise as a complete aesthetic approach, a solid life attitude.
Let’s take our Tumblr account as an example. Although different kinds of content may be found here, most of the posts focus in fashion (displaying complete outfits or even accessories). We choose these elements asking ourselves: would this suit our own designs? Is this appropriate for our vision of the world? Is this different, does it praise the individual?
This is why we are sure that sharing meaningful content aligned with our vision is well-invested time. Sharing is one of our main resources to build community and give depth to Decimononic.
