Blockchain application platform Lisk has announced a collaboration with design agency Taikonauten, with the goal of rebranding its ecosystem to greatly enhance the user experience and facilitate greater user adoption. The partnership will enable the Lisk Foundation to employ the creative talents of the team at Taikonauten to redesign crucial aspects of its platform, such as its logo, website, blockchain explorer and client user interface for desktop and smartphones.

Taikonauten is a Berlin-based design agency which aims to shape the future of the Internet with its work. The company uses digital design to promote key brands, position products and create new opportunities for cutting-edge businesses. Lisk will allow users to develop applications from scratch using JavaScript by deploying sidechains next to the Lisk blockchain. Registered in December 2016, the Lisk Foundation has a permanent mission to enable the project to develop into a widely used, next generation, blockchain application platform set out by its Founders.

As outlined in the Lisk Development Roadmap, this collaboration is part of Lisk’s resilience phase, which aims to build a more elegant core system, an improved Lisk SDK, deploy various useful features, design beautiful and easy user interfaces, and continue to put a focus on security.

Lisk Foundation President, Max Kordek said: “This collaboration will help the Lisk project more efficiently to communicate the goals of our platform. It will improve the user experience of the Lisk client to a level not seen before in the blockchain space, marking a first step for common user adoption, and unifying our whole ecosystem visually. Until now, Lisk has been concentrating its resources on the development of the back end. We have released many optimization, stability and security updates to date marking the significant progress the platform is making. Now, our attention moves to making visible changes to our current ecosystem,” added Kordek.

Founder and Managing Director of Taikonauten, Maik Fahldieck remarked: “Our vision, together with Lisk, is to increase the visibility of this important platform. We aim to keep user needs at the heart of our approach and to make Lisk even more accessible to regular Internet users,”
