To promote their new service to provide online memorials for their loved ones, Rememberum has published a stunning and creative memorial for late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. The memorial is done in the style of the original Mac OS.
One of the primary goals of the design was to simulate the original Macintosh OS interface as closely as possible – this meant pixelated (pixel-perfect) graphics as well as some of the original functionality of the Macintosh, such as keyboard folder navigation and double-clicking. We separated key points in his life into groups of folders and individual files. The folders have keyboard navigation and it is possible to hold down CTRL to select multiple files to open. Each file opens as a ‘textpad’ file and can be moved and cascaded like any window. This, coupled with the keyboard navigation and small retro animations helped to provide a more genuine experience of the original Macintosh computer.
The service is free to use, however the service’s FAQ does mention a future premium option. No details on the premium option are currently available, and it is unknown if the tools will be available to users to create tributes like the Steve Jobs memorial when it comes time to remember their loved ones.
