Nothing is original, these are NOT the logos of Medium AirBNB, Flipboard, and Beats.
The above images are from Trademarks & Symbols of the World book.
This reminds me that “‘Don’t try to be original. Just try to be good.’ That sounds sort of naive but it’s true.” -Paul Rand
Google new identity is beautiful and logo is built on the mathematical purity of geometric circles. They also introduced a new Font type “Product Sans” which reflects this but makes optical corrections for legibility.
Finally i feel good useable design makes you happy.
Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.

Overjoyed by SignEasy iOS App being featured in Apple’s new iPad campaign “Everything Changes with iPad”, aimed to onboard new users by exposing them to the best apps and tools that are changing the way people live and work every day. Take a look to the video. SignEasy is also a part of the ‘Small Business Collection’ recommended by Apple along with other great apps such as Square, Scannable, Quickbooks, OmniFocus2 and Numbers.
It’s a moment to cherish 🙂 and feeling proud when i see my mobile UX/UI work SignEasy is featured worldwide on Apple. It’s been awesome journey tweaking and refining every little details and being part of the team to make the user experience better day by day. Would love to hear your comments.
Recently i was working on default pictures or some people say ghost image for a Mobile application. I tried different variations of icons, flat colour, doodles etc. Somehow i was not satisfied with it, at many times generic grey profile picture looks boring and dull.
So finally i design these abstract patterns in combination of first initial of the name to make it personal which looks interesting and the same time it creates a colour, personality and vibrancy.
Let me know what you think?
Ayse Birsel views on why your life is your most important project. Interesting thoughts!
Collaboration, in its most basic form, is the collective process of creation, problem-solving, and achieving a common goal. But how we collaborate—both physically and virtually—varies greatly. Over the course of a year, Herman Miller’s Insight and Exploration team observed various workplaces to analyze how people collaborate and the ways in which their interactions vary over the course of a day, and throughout the life of a project. By differentiating the subtleties of how, when, where, and why people connect.
No matter what kind of work you do, or if you do it alone or together, this is how work gets done. In every workplace around the world you’ll find people engaged in the following 10 activities.
I would say a very thoughtful research done by Hermanmiller on Collaboration.
