Rebranding Death

over 8 years ago from , tweet me @derrick_l_grant

So... for the past month I've been working on a side project called Will Will. It's a legal, mobile, will making app for the social generation.

getwillwill

Take a look at the site, I'm happy to share some screens if anyone wants to know more. Let me know what you think. Thanks

    This looks really great and I certainly think this is something people need. That being said it seems to be something at the bottom of everyone's todo list. Have you done any research showing that a better/easier will making tool would help people put it at the top of their list?

      Hey Matthew that's a really good question. I've spoken to a lot of friends about Will Will and most people have reacted like yourself. I genuinely think this is something people want if it's presented in a neat and accessible way.

      However the viral effect of creating a will could help highlight it's importance.

      Receiving a notification that someone has left you a gift, or a close friend has given you an important responsibility should make people contemplate their own future.

      Do you agree?

    For the folks that mentioned it in the other post (I accidentally posted twice ...doh!)

    Will Will is no parody!

    I'm using the app to explore the subject of death in a socially connected world and hopefully create a tool with high value if only used once.

    Death feels like one of the last taboo's in the west and from a product/visual design perspective it throws up some interesting questions. Can creating a will be an enjoyable experience? Should creating a will be an enjoyable experience?

    My thinking was heavily influenced by the philosopher Alan Watts. If you're interested I'll post some links.

    I love this idea, there's so much that you can do with it. Good luck!

    This looks useful, I echo others when I say that I know I need a will, but it is not exactly at the top of my to-do. Will this only be available to US citizens? Not sure how the legal aspect will change on a per country basis. I hope it'll be available in the UK!

    Not bad. You have a few types and punctuation mistakes that you will definitely need to iron out. Also, I am not sure how I feel about your logo. It is a little strange with the theme of the website. It doesn't have to match, but it should be similar at least.

      Thanks for highlighting the types I'll amend accordingly. This is the first time I've shared the site but no excuses. As for the logo and branding It'll develop over time, but all suggestions welcome i'm open to feedback!

    I think this is a fantastic idea-- especially as someone who has never really thought of writing a will before. I am looking forward to seeing this in action.
