Rememberum is a new online memorial service where users can design tributes to loved ones. For its launch the startup created one for Apple founder Steve Jobs, adopting the aesthetic of the original Mac OS interface, in tribute to his life…

The Jobs microsite has been developed by David Kelley, Eric Liang, Daniel Eckler and Nick Bujnak of Rememberum which, according to Kelley, has been in development since the Toronto Startup Weekend last November.

“One of the primary goals of the design was to simulate the original Macintosh OS interface as closely as possible,” writes Kelley of the Jobs tribute site. “This meant pixelated (pixel-perfect) graphics as well as some of the original functionality of the Macintosh, such as keyboard folder navigation and double-clicking.”

We separated key points in his life into groups of folders and individual files. The folders have keyboard navigation and it is possible to hold down CTRL to select multiple files to open. Each file opens as a ‘textpadfile and can be moved and cascaded like any window. This, coupled with the keyboard navigation and small retro animations helped to provide a more genuine experience of the original Macintosh computer.”

The Steve Jobs site is at rememberum.com/steve-jobs-tribute. More about Rememberum at rememberum.com and on Kelley’s site, davidkelley.me.
