Everybody's a designer. Especially you!

“Amazon does it like that, WHY can’t we?”, “I don’t think our app is difficult to use at all”, “I showed my app to my partner.. He/she didn’t like it.” - These are of some well meaning words coming together to form no meaning; or worse, they provide an adverse value. But, how do you avoid saying or listening to these words? more

Why do so many of us get fascinated with Apple devices? How do you think the ‘bokeh’ effect came into being? And ‘parallax’? How does one come up with image filter ideas for instagram?

In the real world, when we buy a product, it comes with a quick guide or some other form of documents which help you get going with the product. Without these documents, we’ll have to learn how to use the product leveraging solely on the ‘trial and error’ method — which is not a pleasant user experience at all. more
