Vessel or vessels may refer to:
Vessel is a subscription video service launched in 2015 by the early team behind Hulu, including former CEO Jason Kilar and Richard Tom.
The service resembles that of YouTube, whereby a viewer can watch videos for free. However viewers can add "Early Access" at a monthly fee to their account, which allows them to view videos a minimum of 72 hours before the video is released to the general public. Vessel has since created mobile applications for iOS and Android devices which optimizes the videos for mobile viewing.
The idea behind the site was that creators would be able to gain more revenue from their videos than on YouTube due to the subscription fee as well as advertisements.
Since the site was created, YouTube stars such as Linus Sebastian, Connor Franta, Caspar Lee, Tanya Burr, Good Mythical Morning, Marcus Butler, Kent Heckel and Jack Vale have signed up to have their content streamed on Vessel.
Dark Time Sunshine are an alternative hip hop duo based in Seattle, Washington, consisting of rapper Onry Ozzborn and producer Zavala. They are currently signed to Fake Four Inc.
.design is a top-level domain name. It was proposed in ICANN's New generic top-level domain (gTLD) Program, and became available to the general public on May 12, 2015. Top Level Design is the domain name registry for the string.
In September 2014, Portland, Oregon-based Top Level Design (TLD) won the right to operate the .design top-level domain after beating out six other applicants in a private auction. According to TLD's CEO Ray King, winning the auction was "very important" and one of the company's top priorities, evidenced by its name. He told Domain Name Wire, "Think of all the things that require design. Design permeates all aspects of culture.". design domain registrations became available to the general public on May 12, 2015. According to The Domains, more than 5,200 .design domains were registered on the first day of general availability.
CentralNic provides backend services through an exclusive distribution agreement and shares in the global revenues from .design domain names. Ben Crawford, CentralNic's CEO, said of the top-level domain, "It has impressive commercial potential, and it will be adopted more quickly than many other TLDs as it caters, among many other groups, to one of the best-informed professions on new Internet developments – website designers".
Design is the creation of a plan or convention for the construction of an object or a system (as in architectural blueprints, engineering drawings, business processes, circuit diagrams and sewing patterns). Design has different connotations in different fields (see design disciplines below). In some cases the direct construction of an object (as in pottery, engineering, management, cowboy coding and graphic design) is also considered to be design.
Designing often necessitates considering the aesthetic, functional, economic and sociopolitical dimensions of both the design object and design process. It may involve considerable research, thought, modeling, interactive adjustment, and re-design. Meanwhile, diverse kinds of objects may be designed, including clothing, graphical user interfaces, skyscrapers, corporate identities, business processes and even methods of designing.
Thus "design" may be a substantive referring to a categorical abstraction of a created thing or things (the design of something), or a verb for the process of creation, as is made clear by grammatical context.
