FrontRow Camera Review: Recording Life’s Moments One Story at a Time

Here’s the AppAdvice FrontRow camera review. I’ve been reviewing technology products for nearly eight years and have been using them for many more. During this time, a lot of interesting gadgets have crossed my path. Few have left me more excited than the sleek FrontRow body camera from Ubiquiti Networks. On the surface, the FrontRow camera doesn’t look like it would appeal to everyone. Then again, when you promise to reinvent the camera, all bets are off. Millennial CoolThanks to smartphones and social media companies like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, it’s easy to record and share life’s moments with anyone around the world in mere moments. Unfortunately, holding up your phone to record a concert, sporting event, or political protest can become … Read More

Now Instagram has confirmed to us “this new update rolled out recently” and here’s how it works for all… Read More Read More

Hamburger menu alternatives for mobile navigation

If you’re working on digital products, you have already read dozens of articles describing how and why the hamburger navigation on mobile (and desktop!) hurts UX metrics due of its low discoverability and efficiency. (You can read some of best articles on the topic here, here, here, and here.) Luckily, more and more sites and apps are experimenting with alternative, more efficient solutions for this very problem. None of the ideas listed here is better than the others, their viability and performance obviously depend on the content and the context. 1. Tabs If you have a limited number of sections in your website or app and users should be able to quickly switch between these sections, a tabbed navigation might be the solution. Tabs seem to … Read More

Werklig

Werklig strives to design with purpose and create brands that are “built on truth, not fake stories”. One of my favorite brands they developed is Suomen Jäätelö, a Finnish ice cream company. Especially impressive is the packaging: an unconventionally shaped tub that is covered in a striking pattern. The marbled nature of the graphic is inspired by the perfect elasticity and thickness of the ice cream. It connotes the smooth frostiness of the product and also gives the brand a modern and playful personality. Another great packaging project is their bottles for Galipette, a French apple cider. The roundness of the bottles and labels are inspired by the company’s name, which translates to “somersault”. Wanting to allude to the rural history of cider and attract an urban… Read More

Why you don’t need design like Apple

Apple proved that beauty not only works. It sells. By marrying design and technology, Apple evolved from a niche brand for hobbyists into one of most valuable companies ever. After their success, many companies followed suit and leveled up on design. If you can’t beat ‘em… Many of the products we spend our time with — our phones, laptops, and the software that comes with them — were originally designed, or at least inspired by Apple. And with Apple creating and managing the App Store, a huge chunk of the software industry is now required to have ‘Apple-approved’ design to survive. For design and beauty, our expectations as consumers are higher than they’ve ever been. And the future of where products will compete will hinge more … Read More

Parisian Florist

This is the florist that Joe DiMaggio used to send flowers to Marilyn Monroe’s grave site for 20 years. Isn’t that one of the most poignant and romantic things you’ve ever heard?! This florist is a Hollywood institution. Little dresses in classic vintage silhouettes are my summer staple. They work so well with sneakers, sandals, espadrilles… basically everything. Dress: Reformation. Sandals: Gianvito Rossi. Bag: Cult Gaia. !function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1501515403531?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); }… Read More

Raffinerie

Raffinerie is an award-winning design studio based in Zürich. A favorite project of mine is their collaboration with the Solothurner Film Festival. Building from an established visual language, the studio developed a flexible identity system that they adapt each year. For this year’s event, they created a comprehensive campaign that included posters, invitations, and a program booklet. The promotional pieces highlight the festival’s energetic atmosphere and simultaneously promote its diverse collection of motion pictures. Prominently featured in the materials is a rectangular “O” which represents the screens the movies are projected on. This “O” is manipulated and morphed into a series of dynamic speech bubbles that interact with the film stills featured throughout the system. ——————– Also worth viewing: Elliot Kruszynski Menta Ward… Read More
