This week, I’ll be taking a look at a new kind of app, and how to create a one-of-a-kind, non-traditional app that’s on the forefront of the new digital age.
The idea behind this app, known as the Art of the Unmade, is that it’s created through a process called “designing by design,” in which a designer creates an app with multiple components.
It’s a way to keep design and coding in sync, while still allowing designers to customize the app’s look and feel.
Art of the Unreal is an app from the team at Kontakt, the Dutch-based digital agency that brought you the likes of Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat, Pinterest Plus, and now Art of The Untapped.
The app’s concept was first introduced back in August 2016 when the team first saw a surge in traffic from Instagram users who were using Art of Unmade as their main Instagram feed.
The team then used this to refine the app in a number of ways.
“We’ve always been interested in design and digital design, and this app was an attempt to get to grips with that aspect of design,” Kontackt cofounder Peter van Gessel told me.
“Art of Unbuilt was also an attempt for us to use the same creative process for the digital world that we used for art, in a very simple way.
We wanted to get something to the front of the mobile world that people could use.”
The team started with a basic prototype of the app, but soon they realized they could do more.
They built the app into a social media application, but they also realized that this would make it easier to create custom features, like filters and filters and more.
“The way that we’ve built Art of our app is to give you a complete, curated experience,” van Graftle said.
“You can build your own filters, you can create your own profiles, you’re able to customize your own feed.”
“Art of The Unmade is an easy to use app that you can share on your social media feed, and you can also share it on Instagram.”

This also helped them make the app feel like a real product, not just a tool.
This meant that they had to figure out how to build the product from the ground up, without using any existing apps or tools.
“The first step is to get the app out there,” van Golst said.
The first step in that process was to create their own API, and that meant creating a RESTful interface for the app to work with.
“There’s a lot more work that we had to do, but we were able to get our app to the point where we were ready to build it,” van Delsberg added.
After the app was created, the team used the Art.io platform to make their own custom APIs, and then built a REST API that allowed the app itself to work from the web.
“This is how the app looks like on the Artio platform,” vanGessel said, noting that it uses a REST interface.
The API itself is pretty simple, with an array of data fields for each user.
Each of these fields has a name, description, a number, and a timestamp.
In the app and in the API, users can also click the icon to share the data with other users, like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
If a user clicks the icon, they’ll get a notification.
“If you’ve ever made a REST call to a REST endpoint, you know that’s really great,” van Rooij said.
But he added that the Art API also has some limitations.
“In this particular example, there’s no real way to set up a REST client on the API,” he said.
So the team had to build a custom client for the Art platform that worked on the web as well.
To make the web client work, they built an app called Mysqlite that works as a REST server.
“We built MysQLite on top of Artio and built it on top [of] the Art api,” van Groeneke said.
Mysqliite is the art.io-based web client that runs on the app.
So, what does the app look like on iOS and Android?
“It’s really simple to see the UI,” van Gelst said, pointing out that the app is only one-second away from the one on iOS, which you can check out right now.
“It’s very simple to make a new user see this,” he added.
“For example, you have your app and the user has their own Art of Uncovered account, and the app wants to show
