Chrysalis – A Positive Change Initiative

It’s alive!

It is with great excitement that we announce the official launch of ‘Chrysalis’ the online magazine about Positive Change built by Deependers for Deependers.

Why ‘Chrysalis’?

Chrysalis is a platform for all who work here to share their thoughts and opinions on what interests, motivates and keeps us inspired. It’s a snapshot of the evolving world, from innovation to commerce, culture to technology and of course all things design. Its where we collect our thoughts and opinions on the things we think genuinely contribute to positive change around us.

The purpose of Chrysalis is to provide everyone within the business an outlet to be able to be express themselves to the world whilst at the same time, for us all to build a resource of all of the great things that normally get sent around via email and have them in the one place to be able to draw on again in the future. (Part communication platform, part knowledge sharing resource)


Where does Chrysalis come from?

Chrysalis – A chrysalis (Latin chrysallis, from Greek χρυσαλλίς = chrysallís, pl: chrysalides, also known as an aurelia) or nympha is the pupal stage of butterflies. The term is derived from the metallic gold-coloration found in the pupae of many butterflies, referred to by the Greek term χρυσός (chrysós) for gold.

A pupa (Latin pupa for doll, pl: pupae or pupas) is the life stage of some insects undergoing transformation. The pupal stage is found only in holometabolous insects, those that undergo a complete metamorphosis, going through four life stages; embryo, larva, pupa and imago. (For a list of such insects see Holometabolism).

The pupae of different groups of insects have different names such as chrysalis in the Lepidoptera order and tumbler in the mosquito family. Pupae may further be enclosed in other structures such as cocoons, nests or shells.[1]
