Nostalgic Game Design for Horizon Chase

Nostalgic Game Design for Horizon Chase abduzeedo Feb 16, 2018 Horizon Chase is one of those games that brings back a lot of good memories, especially if you are from the generation that played the classic Sega Outrun or Nintendo’s Top Gear. Outrun is the best reference because of the Ferrari. Another amazing thing about this game and game design is that I know the folks behind it, they are from my hometown, which makes me even happier. So for this post I just wanted to share the work that Rodrigo Bellão published on his Behance profile. I added the info he was kind to share with us. As the Lead UX/UI designer on this project I worked alongside the game designers to revamp the nostalgic experience of the classics racing games from the 90’s in this multi platform game developed by Aquiris Game Studio.

Introducing The Pen Rewritten: RIIND’S New Twist On A Timeless Classic

Introducing The Pen Rewritten: RIIND’S New Twist On A Timeless Classic ibby Feb 16, 2018 I’m an admitted pen-aholic. There, I said it. I’m not shy to admit I would look forward to Sunday’s as a child when my dad carted me down to his office and I could rummage through the pen drawer to find my new favorite. I’m also truly obsessed with handwritten notes and I’m on a one-woman mission to ensure this beautiful art is not lost in the digital age in which we now exist. I nearly fell off my chair then upon receiving a note from the creative folk over at RIIND to test out their gorgeous, purposefully designed pen that flips a timeless instrument on its very own head. With the sole mission of designing, developing and creating long-lasting products with purpose, we think these two MIT graduate school friends are on to something good. They joined forces to start RIIND with a few simple mandates in mind: build simple, powerful objects that are designed to last. Their first foray in this journey together starts with a most timeless tool as the pen and we think they’ve got a bright future ahead based on the impeccable attention to every last… Read More»

4 Ways You’re Ruining Your Social Media Reputation

We all know that you can’t turn any corner without running into social media, especially since the majority of digital marketing depends on it. Despite your love-hate relationship with it, you must be aware of certain deal-breakers which will repel followers, fans, and even clients away from you. Even if you’re a social media guru, let’s go over 4 ways you may be ruining your social media reputation. Overload or Ghost Town Social media presence is defined by the posts the company or individual makes on their profiles. Before even getting into the quality of your posts, let’s talk about the numbers. If you only post once a month or every few weeks, your followers will slowly begin to lose interest or even forget.
