No Credentials is a blog and future print publication devised by Kieron and edited by Cyomji Studio. It centres around the idea of the droves of people who have creative and unique opinions about a variety of subjects, but not the platform to express them; which is where No Credentials comes in. The blog is currently open for submissions, so if you have a special interest, but no formal background in it then please write to us!
In terms of the design of the project, Ryan wanted to keep the design extremely simple and sparse for the benefit of the content; the content being the all-important. The central idea of No Credentials is informal conversations on possibly formal topics, so Ryan explored this idea through the typography employed throughout the design. The informal Fugue in constant conversation with the quite formal Larish Neue, both designed by Radim Pesko type foundry. The unusual nature of the blog is also referenced in the colour scheme of the website's visuals, by using unusual shades of complementary colours. The look-and-feel is very much inspired by various indie publications, which is hopefully what the project will one day also become.
