Mobile App Design: NYC Taxi App Concept using Adobe XD

Mobile App Design: NYC Taxi App Concept using Adobe XDAoiroStudioApr 09, 2019

An interesting mobile app design case study by Yaroslav Lozovoi, a UI/UX designer based in Odessa, Ukraine. He shared on Behance about a concept of a NYC Taxi App, we are commonly used to the Uber experience but how about for cab drivers? Following his design process from research to the UI design, he also has done a tremendous job at building the presentation as well. 2 more points on the presentation! On the actual work, I can feel some patterns from Uber but I just love the thinking behind the “advanced search”, it’s intuitive and on point on the user goal. Hope you will like this case study!

Hi mates! Some time ago I worked on a taxi application and was inspired to make my own one. I made some research and interviewed a target audience to be able to create a useful and comfortable product that corresponds to all user’s needs. Advice and opinions are welcome 🙂

That 90s Look is Coming Back – Design Across America Brochure

That 90s Look is Coming Back – Design Across America BrochureabduzeedoApr 08, 2019

Melody Yung and Brett Lovelady shared a really awesome graphic design/editorial design project on Behance titled Design Across America. It’s a collection of product design created across America from the folks over at Astro. Melody and Brett say: “At the heart of all of Astro’s design is an American ethos. We recently put together a brochure to highlight projects with stakes all over the US, from Seattle to Detroit to NYC.” – personally I am not very familiar with the product, however, I would love to talk about the design of the brochure and how it could be part of our “That 90s Look is Coming Back” series. It seems to have all the ingredients, I will let you decide. At the heart of all of Astro’s design is an American ethos

Our collaborations with NYC-based American Kennel Club resulted in a smart-dog collar, brand and packaging that’s equally dog and people friendly. With our Seattle-based friends at Prolitec, we created the product, identity, and packaging for Aera, a unique fragrance station for the home. Our work with Detroit’s prolific Shinola led to a suite of power cords, a wall clock based on their bestselling watch, and a turntable (their first foray into the audio space).

Avid Media Composer 2019 Completely Reimagines Their NLE Platform

Avid’s redesigned NLE gets some major updates.

It’s 2019 folks and it’s about damn time that we have a good ol’ fashioned NLE showdown between some of the major players in video editing software.

With updates to the Adobe Creative Cloud kicking off NAB 2019 already, Avid has fired back and shows that they still have some re-imaginative tricks up their sleeve with their new Media Composer 2019.

Let’s take a look at the new updates which include a new customizable interface, the next generation of Avid Media Engine, and new workflows.

Avid’s Pitch for ‘Movie Makers’

Avid’s place in the video editing industry has historically been considered the tool for high end features and video projects with tons of footage. Adobe Premiere Pro and Apple’s Final Cut Pro made inroads early as more intuitive and accessible options for people without “formal” training.

With Avid’s new multi-panelled Media Composer 2019 however, it looks like Avid is going all-in on customization and task-based workflows which looks much more visually appealing and simplified.

A proprietary production tuning process allows the optical performance of each lens in the range to be uniquely configured—tuned or toned— to their owner’s wishes and creative style.” — Film & Digital Times
