53feet is the experimental site of Jordan M. Gadapee. On the site you'll find a variety of timed graphic design compositions. This new version of the site features timed compositions from 3 unique categories: Time Stamps, Do-Overs, & 53Promo.
Time Stamps are journalistic compositions that capture a specific moment, idea, mood, etc happening at any given time of day.
Do-Overs (Do-Overs) are timed remakes of a found piece of design. It maybe be a logo, package, web-site, and so forth.
53Promo are fun playful designs that promote the site and promote the practice of regular design play and experimentation in the day-to-day life of creative individuals.
53feet has seen many changes and updates over the years, so I'll tell the story quickly. It began as a web portal, and then, after realizing those sites took a lot of work, turned into a personal folio site. Phase 3 of 53feet.com was a blog styled site for showcasing timed type compositions, and while the format occasionally changed, it remained that way for years. Those compositions slowly morphed into a kind of visual journal that marked what was going on in my life at a specific point in time. The time stamps will be the primary carry-over from the old site.
The name, 53feet, is the result of a summer of travel. Most semis have 53foot long beds, you can see the 53 on the side of nearly every truck, and I was obsessed with counting the number of 53s I saw that summer. When it came time to name my "portal," I liked the sound of the name, so it stuck.
All of the compositions on this site are timed. The archived compositions are made in under 15 minutes, and the new compositions are within 15-20min.
