Make It Simple

simple

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.

Default Picture

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?

A Microsoft Vision Of The Future Of Mobility

The future holds “an expanded definition of productivity where it’s not just about getting things done. It’s also about doing the right things, and doing them well and enjoying the process with other people in a very natural way.”
In the video, Microsoft paints a world in which smartphones are about the size of a business card, and just about any surface you come into contact with has a touch-sensitive interface.

The Future of Self-Service Banking

ATMs were first introduced over 40 years ago and since then many features have been incrementally added to the machines, in order to fulfill the dream of a truly “automated teller”. Modern ATMs offer a wide range of banking transactions; nevertheless the actual interaction has remained largely untouched.

Have a look at the video to learn about the unique features of the envisioned self-service experience. It took 2 years of time and a team of committed companies to develop this ATM. Via IDEO

Rimino – A Human Touch on Mobile Experience

Now here’s the mobile experience made me wow: Project Rimino redefines mobile experience through human factors research and design thinking. Informed by human experience, the project is guided by both observational and experimental design research methods.

The Rimino concept is an E-paper mobile device with a user interface inspired by print posters. Historically, as technology has progressed, devices have become more conspicuous. Rimino challenges this trend and presents the alternative: technology that is more integrated and more sensitive to the human experience.

Rimino concept video represents a future that is envisioned to be more aligned with what we need and want as people instead of our needs and wants being dictated by technology.

Awesome work with great details.

 

A first look at the new “Windows 8″ user interface.

The new Windows 8 touch-based UI, revealed earlier today at the D9 Conference, looks good. And it’s clearly drawn from the same inspiration as Windows Phone 7.

The demo showed some of the ways to reimagined the interface for a new generation of touch-centric hardware. Fast, fluid and dynamic, the experience has been transformed while keeping the power, flexibility and connectivity of Windows intact.

A few aspects of the new interface are:

  • Fast launching of apps from a tile-based Start screen, which replaces the Windows Start menu with a customizable, scalable full-screen view of apps.
  • Live tiles with notifications, showing always up-to-date information from your apps.
  • Fluid, natural switching between running apps.
  • Convenient ability to snap and resize an app to the side of the screen, so you can really multitask using the capabilities of Windows.
  • Web-connected and Web-powered apps built using HTML5 and JavaScript that have access to the full power of the PC.
  • Fully touch-optimized browsing, with all the power of hardware-accelerated Internet Explorer 10.
