"Vibrant Pink" - Color of the week. WGSN #colouroftheweek is vibrant pink. From hot and vibrant to cool pastel, pink stood out as the strongest newcomer at Milan Design Week. Solid pink was worked across an entire room set at Officine Tamborrino, with every item and surface covered in pink-coated paper.

"By looking beyond the product to take a broader view of customer issues and activities around the product, companies can find new ways to address unmet needs, create talk-worthiness, and fuel differentiation."

Rick Wise. “Move Over Product Design, UX Is The Future” (via peterspear)

User experience is driving more and more product decisions in the enterprise.  When there was no competition from outside apps, it was easy for vendors and enterprises to ignore the wishes of users.  Now with mobile phones and a plethora of vastly superior apps, users are voting with their downloads.  If companies have any hope of getting users back, they must get on board with user-centric design and agile business-driven iteration.

Multinational Typeface

Much has been written and said about the needs of our global economy. In fact: heated debates have and are still taking place about the dichotomy of global vs. local.

Here’s a take from Leong Darren Abriel designer from London and LP Fabra collective from Singapore on it all: when you set up a new hub to work with the rest of the world, it kind of makes sense to install a multinational team to do so. Not just a local setup running a global account, but a team that has got a clue about the world out there. They did just that and they invented a design tool to brand this team to communicate their mindset and vision - the world’s first multinational typeface.
We love the idea of making an multinational typeface to get to the power of each country and to underline the patriotism in everyone of us. Enjoy it!

EUROPE IN 8 BITS is a documentary that explores the world of chip music, a new musical trend that is growing exponentially throughout Europe. The stars of this musical movement reveal to us how to reuse old videogames hardware like Nintendo’s GameBoy, NES, Atari ST, Amiga and the Commodore 64 to turn them into a tool capable of creating a new sound, a modern tempo and an innovative musical style. This is a new way of interpreting music performed by a great many artists who show their skills in turning these “limited” machines designed for leisure in the 80’s into surprising musical instruments and graphical tools. It will leave nobody indifferent.

Seven Things Your Boss Needs to Know About UX

UX is Iterative

“What is taking so long?” An impatient CFO once asked me. He expected the design for the application my team was creating to be “one and done” and the idea that we were having iteration cycles confused him. I had to explain to him that the process we follow is iterative,…

AirBnB iOS app First Time User Experience

The good bits:

  • The app allows users to skip the intro tour and browse listings without needing to log in to an account.
  • There are no coachmarks or popovers that get in the way of a user who simply wants to find a place to stay.
  • Signing in is only prompted if a user wants to book a reservation.
  • The user can re-access the “How it Works” intro tour via the app’s navigation.

To be improved:

  • The intro tour is more marketing-oriented than “How it Works”-oriented. I would suggest either reducing from multiple panels to a single panel with a list of 3 bullets plus sign-in, sign-up and get started prompts, or make the content on each panel more helpful. In some cases the text is informative, but is made difficult to read because of the noise of the photo behind it, and also because the photography itself is disconnected from the messaging. People will perceive the photos before they perceive the text, and may quickly pass these over because they assume the content isn’t related to how to use the product.
