Kinfo (Web app, 2008)
Kinfo was a familial social network + a wiki approach to collaborative genealogy. It started as my Master's Thesis at NYU and became a startup that raised a $5M Series A.
It's a Hedge, not a Tree
The heart of the application is the family “hedge”, an innovative way to explore your family, your family’s family, and so on.
Family Photo Collage
Kinfo’s main function is the sharing of family photos, which are all pooled together to create a massive collaborative family album. You can browse through the collage by Person, Event, or Year.

I sketched the intertwined trees logo on a scrap of paper. Translating it to a perfect vector illustration was...not easy.
