Mobile Application & UI/UX: Tooway App

Mobile Application & UI/UX: Tooway App AoiroStudio Jun 28, 2017 I am always interested in what people come up with mobile applications. Having the knowledge of creating an app is one but having that special idea that will bring it to t a whole level is two. Let’s take apart the conceptual mobile app by Hyemin Yoo and Taehee Kim who created what they called: Tooway App. Overall, I think the design looks great, the small details are quite effective and make me appreciate it even more. Personally, I think the concept is a bit over the top (in my opinion) but it just works for the right reasons and goals. Hyemin Yoo and Taehee Kim are both designers into UI/UX. With a similar profiles in range as skills and courtesy; they have merged their forces into the concept of the Tooway App. The TOOWAY app service was created to help people with making decisions.

Brand Identity and Graphic Design for The Metropolitain Orchestra

Brand Identity and Graphic Design for The Metropolitain Orchestra abduzeedo May 18, 2017 The byHAUS Studio shared a great brand identity and graphic design project on their Behance profile. It’s the new identity for The Metropolitain Orchestra with Yannick Nézet-Séguin. They describe it as a rethought the identity by playing with contrasts and sensations. The new logo is a monogram composed of two letters: one anchored in modernity, the other in a classical tradition. Moreover, the perfect circle which replaces the letter O is exploited throughout a graphic design platform as a window where the music is expressed. A lyrical and opulent typographic game completes the identity system. Thus, OM proudly takes the place it deserves: an orchestra assumed, relevant, well of its time, but still and always resolutely classic – in their own words. The project is a great example of modernizing but still keeping it simple and elegant. You can see from the before and after that the circle from the original logo was preserved and became the O of Orchestre as they mentioned. Below we showcase a bit more of the project and some of its graphic design applications.

You Have the Data, Now What? How to turn data into usable information to improve your business.

The need for Data Analytics has never been bigger than it is today. From understanding what’s going on inside your business, to understanding the customers you so loyally serve! Whether you are part of a multinational corporation or a small start-up, chances are there is more data around than you realize. In an age of connected technology, it is not getting hold of the data that is the difficult part. From your accounting software to your website everything is stored and tracked, just waiting to be analyzed. But, there is a big difference between having data, and using data. So often, people think they are reporting well because they see information. A list of customers who haven’t bought from us in 6 months, is information. Judging how valuable each customer is to the business based on this, is insight. It is insight that will really allow you to bring greater value to the business. “Without data, you’re just another person with an opinion” – W. Edward Deming Quality not Quantity Chances are, you have tons of data. Across multiple tools, inputted by multiple users. Great, right? Except, here’s where most problems come in. The quality of your data far out ways the quantity. The ability to be… Read More»

Graphic Design: Paper Craft Project Inspired by The Little Prince

Graphic Design: Paper Craft Project Inspired by The Little Prince abduzeedo May 22, 2017 Le Petit Prince is a graphic design project created and shared by Rafa Miqueleto. It was a commissioned work done inspired by The Little Prince movie. One of the coolest things about this project is the tools and materials used. It’s a paper craft full of style. The details and the dimensionality added by layers of papers and folds is just beautiful. In addition to that, and the most amazing in my opinion, is the irregularities of the cuts. I have tried to do this type of work in Illustration and Photoshop, however it always end up looking to uniform or computer generated. Nothing can beat the real deal, it’s almost a homage to graphic design projects from a different era, an era without computers. Rafa Miqueleto is a graphic designer and illustrator from Sao Paulo, Brazil. He has a super strong portfolio with more amazing projects like this one. I highly recommend you to check it out at http://cargocollective.com/miqueleto Graphic design and paper craft Making Of graphic design illustration paper craft

App Design and UX: Onstreet Community Concept

App Design and UX: Onstreet Community Concept AoiroStudio May 25, 2017 We are checking out this app design concept that involves UX and motion for a community called: Onstreet. Designed by Seoul-based designer Jaejin Bong, it’s an app based on a mixture of photo app and a shopping experience. So basically you’re sharing your daily look and you can tag the items that you are wearing so others can collect that information to buy them. It’s an elaborate take on mobile shopping and I think that the idea is quite unique. I am not personally the genre of person to take a picture of my outfit but there’s a certainty of a market of users for this experience and I’ll be intrigued to see how the future holds as the retail experience is slowing dying. Check it out! Behind this concept is the work from Jaejin Bong who is a UI & Graphic Designer based in Seoul, Korea. You should definitely check out his Behance for more projects.
