Why did I build this?

There's a problem with meme creation

 WHEN I WANT TO CREATE A MEME BUT I DON'T KNOW WHICH TEMPLATE TO USE | image tagged in lonely pablo | made w/ Imgflip meme maker

Unless you know what you're looking for, you can't find the right meme. This becomes a barrier for those who want to create memes.

A typical meme creation process

  1. Find a situation (or the situation finds you)
  2. Pick an appropriate meme template
  3. Create the meme

Contrary to popular belief, creating the meme is the easiest part.

The real challenge is finding the right template.

How does memeDB help?

The road ahead

The app is bound by my knowledge of how to build it. My vision isn't.

Here's how I'm thinking about the next steps

  1. Example memes
  2. Template usage best practices
  3. Expand to GIF memes
  4. An interactive meme course
  5. A book on how to create memes
