Redesigning Google: a beautiful revolution

Ecosystems Have Changed Our Roles and the Way We Work

For me, there are a few well made points:

  • Journeys drive strategy; personas aren’t enough
  • “Mono-messages” are no longer useful in ecosystems; marketing and UX have to co-exist
  • Ecosystems are pushing us to reinvent the way we work together, literally
  • Designing for experiences within an ecosystem requires a deep understanding of data. Data are the new pixels – they are the cell units of ecosystem design. Algorithms are the new rules of style and composition

It’s about people, not devices

We live in exciting times. Times of innovation, invention, and rapid change. Technologies that were unthinkable years ago are now commonplace. Close to 1.5 billion people worldwide use a computer, but that figure pales in comparison to the 4.2 billion (75% of the planet) who use or have access to a mobile phone.

Adobe Success Story: LG Electronics Flash Lite Case Study

 LG Electronics Flash Lite Case Study

Via Bill, Adobe published about LG Electronics and the success they’ve had by using Flash Lite for the UI of their phones, including touch screen phones such as the PRADA.

The tight integration between Flash CS3 Professional and Flash Lite enabled the LG Electronics mobile phone team to completely overhaul the phone’s menu structure, improve navigation efficiency, add functionality, and design an array of icons unique to the touch interface. Working in a seamless environment, the team rapidly prototyped concepts and increased their productivity. According to Hosang Cheon, Chief research engineer, LG Electronics, “I estimate our team accelerated the PRADA phone time to market by 30% to 40% thanks to the improvements in the newest versions of Adobe Flash CS3 Professional and Adobe Flash Lite.”

Creating smart and usable UI for mobile devices with emotional appeal is a designers big challenge :) but design always passionate me to create something different.

Finally something must to be excited about for Flash lite developer, Nokia released new Device API support for Nokia S60 5th Edition where it can access to Phone features.

Developers of Flash Lite from Adobe applications benefit from the UI enhancements in S60 5th Edition, with more screen real estate and touch interaction enabling users to more easily and intuitively navigate Flash Lite content and applications. The on-screen keyboard also is available for text and data entry.
S60 5th Edition continues to support Flash Lite 3.0, with the addition of ActionScript extensions to take advantage of S60 Platform Services.

These extensions provide access to:

  • The application manager.
  • Calendar records.
  • Contacts records.
  • Log information.
  • SMS and MMS messaging.
  • The media gallery.
  • Device location.
  • Landmarks.
  • System information.
  • Sensors.

These new APIs enable Flash Lite developers to access device-application data, such as that held in Calendar and Contacts, as well as information on a device’s location.
Together, the UI- and platform-access enhancements enable Flash Lite developers to create a completely new breed of context-aware applications and services that provide users with information unique to their own experiences.

First device with S60 5th Edition is Nokia 5800 Xpress Music
