conceived by swedish interactive art director fred nerby as a conceptual systematic design approach,the imagined layout to the largest networking platform in the world – yes, we’re talking about facebook here –focuses on a more streamlined solution for the online platform. by implementing a tile format torefresh the existing networking site, the designer works around a fluid grid with 7×8 columns,to provide a more engaging experience.

my dashboard / news grid view

responsive panels – selectable views with a fluid layout

nerby introduces a primary & secondary column for filtering posts, creating a greater personalised experience. the option to favour close friends or eliminate posts of less importance while keeping friends within the account.

* ‘close friends’ vs ‘all friends’

find friends



the ajax driven search engine enables users to search within profiles with immediate search-results triggered by the interface. friends are sorted by category in the side panel, where filters and data is managed by the user.
