The CV Tabloid – Editorial Design

The CV Tabloid – Editorial Design AoiroStudio Nov 10, 2016 Nowadays, being unique in your work, brand or portfolio really can paid off. We spoke about reinventing the wheel and it’s still always the case. Let’s talk about portfolios for example, we follow a ”rule” about how we should showcase (in print) our portfolio, having a business card and an introductory letter. Let’s put ourselves in the shoes of your next employer, how many portfolios they have seen so far? What’s the amount of time given on a review? Being different might add to your chances? It all depends but let’s just say that it’s helpful in some way. Let’s take a look at what Charlotte Allen did for her portfolio and we can’t help to appreciate how it does stand out and it’s worth the effort to be innovative and creative. What do you think? ​Designing my own portfolio has proven to be one of the most challenging projects to develop, as a client to myself has verified how difficult it is to make choices that would usually come as second nature. Nonetheless, it’s one of the most exciting self-initiated projects to complete. The concept behind the delivery was… Read More»

Using Coupons to Drive Sales

Deals are all around us, and savings are ripe for the taking. Coupons, particularly are everywhere – haunting your email inbox, floating through your text messages, and billowing out of your mailbox. As a consumer, no doubt you love a good bargain just as much as anyone else – I mean, who hasn’t bragged about getting designer jeans for 50% off? Or in my case, a Captain America t-shirt? So why should you feel any differently about the issue as a merchant? People love to feel like they’re getting a deal, and if you can offer them an amazing opportunity, it tends to inspire their loyalty. But let’s not count our chickens before they’re hatched. You should realize that there is a lot to consider prior to taking the plunge into coupon sales. First, what basic content do I need for a coupon? Second, what kinds of offers would best suit my business? Third, how should I market my coupons? Fourth – the most dreaded question – how do I manage the cost of coupons to my company? Don’t freak out. This may seem like a lot to handle, but I’ll walk you through the process one step at a… Read More»

UI Design: PayPal Concept Design

UI Design: PayPal Concept Design abduzeedo Dec 01, 2016 PayPal seems to be one service that a lot of designers use for UI design or concept redesigns. I quite like that because it’s a finance application. It’s in a way not towards social/user generated content where it’s all about style or beauty. It’s about money, balance, transfers and stuff like that. Filippos Protogeridis shared a good one on his Behance profile.The simple and super elegant UI design, it is more image heavy when necessary, like on the promo page and utilitarian when it needs to be. Overall I quite like this concept, much more than the official and current design. Below you can see a bit more of the project. UI Design   About the designer Filippos Protogeridis is a user interface and interaction designer, focusing on product design in the technology industry. He is the Head of Design at Yatzer, while also working with several companies as a product designer, namely Transifex, Welcome, Incrediblue and e-FOOD.
