Too Much Damn Content

  • Chappell Ellison




The Old Library



It would you take 11,000 years to watch every movie and tv show on Netflix. The Washington Post alone publishes 500 articles a day. Your mattress company has a lifestyle magazine. The race to make the internet a seamless, content fountain is starting to feel more like a firehose. Are we ignoring a growing mindset—people who feel anxious in the face of content overload? If so, how do we design for them?

The Old Library

Located at The Custard Factory, in the heart of Digbeth, Birmingham’s Creative Quarter, The Old Library is a truly unique space. The original library first opened as one of Birmingham’s five free libraries in 1866, and it is now the only one still standing. The library’s doors closed to the public in 1940 and remained closed until 1990. Many of the Victorian period features have been recently restored, including vaulted ceilings and iconic arch windows – making the interior light and airy, and flooded with natural daylight.

The Old Library is easily reached by public transport, car, or about 10 minutes walk from Birmingham city centre.
