As a creative (I am a creative, right?), I enjoy revisiting the history of a project, reviewing the iterations and edits that went into a particular design. I love seeing how what started out as initial sketches on a scrap of paper developed into a big website or print brochure. For me, the story behind how something was created is as interesting as the end creation itself.
The other day, I opened the calculator app on my iPad and saw some numbers on the screen. “What had I been calculating?” I wondered. I became fascinated by the numbers: how did I achieve that mathematical result? It certainly would be very exciting to able to explore the history of my calculator, to see what numbers, fractions and equations I had studied, used and computed.
