To Hope Beyond Hope: iOS 7 Concepts Jony Ive Should Definitely Draw Inspiration From


  
ios1 Flat and very, very colorful is Apple's new approach to iOS. Reactions are partly flat, partly very colorful, too. "Love it or leave it" seems to be the only option.

Tayasui Sketches – Creative iPad App for the Paper Lover


  
tayasui-sketches-artistry-w550

It's been quite a while since we last published an article in our series of iPad apps for the creative professional. As we all know there is no shortage of apps for the Apple tablet in general. Hundreds of thousands can be downloaded. All in all more than 50 billion apps have been downloaded from the App Store since its inception, which allows us to roughly estimate, that each human being walking this earth must own 8 apps on average. Hey, the numbers never lie. The app we want to introduce to you today is called Tayasui Sketches and at first sight it will remind you of Paper by FiftyThree, closely. At second, too...

How To Create an iOS App Icon for Your Website

Did you know you can give your website its very own app icon for iPhones and iPads? It only takes a few seconds and it makes your site look really smart when it’s saved on a user’s home screen, or when viewed in popular apps such as Reeder.

Why create an app icon?

Specifying an app icon is one of those little finishing touches that isn’t really noticeable but makes all the difference if you take it away. Without an app icon if you bookmark a site on your iPhone or iPad you’re left with an ugly screenshot of the page crammed into the little rounded square, but with one line of code you can choose your own icon design, such as a logo. It’s much like a favicon, but on a larger scale.

Having someone bookmark your site onto their device home screen is probably a rare occurrence, but as I discovered today there’s another major benefit of creating an app icon. Roberto Alanís tweeted me recently asking how I achieved such a nice icon in Reeder app. My first response was “I don’t know!”, but then I realised it was my apple touch icon that was being used.

How to create an Apple touch icon

The specified dimensions of a touch icon directly from Apple is 114x114px, this will compensate for Retina displays and produce a nice crisp home screen icon. However, as you can see from the Reeder screenshot, other sites using 114px touch icons don’t fill all the available space. Reeder is one of the most popular RSS apps, plus the touch icon may be used elsewhere too, so it’s worth creating your icon at much larger dimensions.

I chose the dimensions of 512x512px, which is probably a little overkill, but apparently 241x241px would suffice.

Next you need to decide whether you want Apple to add their glossy highlight effects to your icon. If you do, name it apple-touch-icon.png, if you don’t, name it apple-touch-icon-precomposed.png.

<link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="/apple-touch-icon.png" />
<link rel="apple-touch-icon-precomposed" href="/apple-touch-icon-precomposed.png" />

You don’t actually need to write any code to get your touch icon working, just pop it in the root directory of your website and it will automatically be used by Apple devices. It might be worth linking it in your <head> though just as a reminder that it’s there. If you ever redesign you might end up forgetting to update it. Once again, make your choice of glossy or precomposed.

No Matter of Luck: What To Consider In Mobile App Development [Infographic]


  
MobileAppDevIG_teaserl

There are gazillions of mobile apps out there. If you are looking for a specific use case or - not - you won't see any shortage in what you will be able to find. Thus, releasing a mobile app is not without risks. You need to create something outstanding to attract the users. But how do you know? How can you improve? Sure, you can always wait for shit storms to wipe away your Facebook page or you can rely on these nice one-star-ratings in app stores. Did you know, that 60 % of all apps in Apple's App Store have not once been downloaded. If I were you, I'd try to find alternatives to hoping and waiting (and failing) ;-)

Showcase of 40 Insanely Detailed iOS Icon Designs

iOS icons have come a long way since the birth of the iPhone. Not only are they now shared between iPhone and iPad, with the introduction of retina displays the resolution of the these icons is so high it allows the designer to incorporate some unbelievable detail. This post showcases some of the most detailed iOS icons on the web, with some even crossing into the realm of hyperrealism.

How to Create a Color-Inspired iOS Icon for Retina Displays

Advertise here via BSA

Creating an icon for iOS presents a variety of challenges to designers — challenges such as the size constraint. The purpose of this tutorial is help you create an icon for iOS that not only looks good, but also gives you a feel for what actually goes into creating icons for iOS. For this tutorial, we’ll be using Photoshop and Fireworks as well Cocoia’s iPhone 4 Icon PSD which you can download here.

Part One: Starting in Fireworks

In this part, we’ll be actually creating the content of the icon. The icon will look like a blend of colors so Photoshop may be considered overkill for this, while Fireworks does the job easily and efficiently.

1. Fire up Fireworks and create a new document that is 512 x 512px with a white background (don’t worry, this will be changed later).

Screen Shot 2012-04-22 at 09.18.38

2. Select the Ellipse tool from the left-hand sidebar or by pressing U and draw a reasonably-sized circle on your canvas whilst holding down the Shift key to constrain the circle. Select your circles and change the width and height to 210px – you can do this by changing the dimensions in left of the Properties window.

3. Now, on the right-hand side, right click the layer called Ellipse and click duplicate layer, do this three times so you have four circles on your canvas and spread them out.

Screen Shot 2012-04-22 at 09.22.26

4. Select a circle and in the Properties section (at the bottom) change the color to something strong – in this example I will be choosing Red (#FF0000) to be the shape’s fill color.

5. Repeat this step for each of the circles, each having a strong color – I am using Red: #FF0000 Blue: #0000FF, Green: #339900 and Orange: #CC6600.

Screen Shot 2012-04-22 at 09.26.04

6. Now, select all the circles on your canvas and select the opacity slider in the Properties window at the bottom and change the opacity to something substantial such as 60%.

7. Now, align all the circles that are on your canvas in the center and then select the top-most layer and in the bottom left corner (the left side of the Properties bar) change the Y position to 221 and, providing you’ve done everything correctly, it should read as: H: 210, W: 210, X: 151 and Y: 221. Now, select your second layer and change the Y position to 81. Select the third layer and change the X value to 221 and then the final layer’s X value should be 81 and it should be aligned in the center of the canvas.

8. Now, select all of the shapes and select the free transform tool from the sidebar (Command + T) and increase the size of the circles whilst constraining them by holding down Option (alt) and Shift and then press enter to accept.

Screen Shot 2012-04-22 at 09.42.29

9. Save your document as a PNG in your desired location.

Part Two: Making the Icon in Photoshop

Now, we’ll be moving from Fireworks to Photoshop and actually creating the icon along with a slight tint.

1. If you haven’t done so already, download Cocoia’s iPhone 4 Icon PSD template and then open it in Photoshop — for this tutorial, we’ll be creating an icon that is for the iPhone and for the retina display, so with the template open, right click the folder within the layers area entitled “114 Pixels (iPhone 4 home screen)” and select Duplicate Group and under document, select New and give it a name and press OK.

2. You should now be left with the icon on your canvas, select the Crop tool and crop around the icon template – the document size should end up being 114×114px once cropped. This is the standard size for a retina display icon.

Screen Shot 2012-04-22 at 10.03.45

3. Within the group (in the Layers section) we’re going to delete some layers, so delete the layer called Sample Shape copy 2, this should remove the star and also delete the layer called Stripes and you should be left with a clean, clear icon.

4. Select the color next to the layer entitled Base Shape copy 2 and change it to white and then navigate to your saved PNG file from part one and drag it to your canvas and then resize the icon (again, constraining it using Shift and Option) to a size that you believe looks good.

5. Right click the layer that you just created by dragging the new shape onto the canvas and select Create Clipping Mask.

6. Now, this is where you use your own discretion — you can alter the opacities of the tint and fill of the icon to make it look like you want. You can also change the background color from white to another color. In this example, I have used a dark shade of blue (#196088).

Photoshop

7. Once you’ve finished changing the opacity and tint of your icon, you’re ready to save it. The standard naming convention for retina display icons is Icon@2x.png so save your file with that name as a PNG file.

That concludes this tutorial – the purpose of this tutorial was to help you get to to grips with some basic color-blending techniques in Fireworks as well as to allow you to get to know the world of creating icons for iPhone and iPod Touch in Photoshop. In the source files I have included the Fireworks and Photoshop document along with the source code for an Xcode document if you want to test the new icon out on your retina device.

The Grim Future of Web Browsers

Nothing new appearing today in the IT world is labelled as a surprise, because everything moves so fast and at some point in time you start to know when the big news hit the market. With the technology advancing so fast, especially all the mobile devices we call smartphones today part of the mainstream and are, maybe, the most important thing in our lives. So by sending a message from your QWERTY Android device or by playing Fruit Ninja on your latest iPhone, have you ever thought that you yourself are changing the IT world?

Well if you haven’t, I can tell you for sure that you do. By using portable devices more often and desktop computers less the latest gadgets quickly become out of date. Without realizing we have become unplugged and do not need computers anymore – which also means we do not need browsers anymore. And why would we? At the end of the day we have our smartphones filled with apps that can keep us busy for a long time. Sometimes I don’t even check my Facebook from my computer, even if I am close to it, because it is much easier to do it from the phone. Ever since the IT world made it possible to connect to the internet wirelessly, nobody has looked back. People invest much more money today in phones and portable devices like tablets or eBook Readers than in computers.

Internet without a Browser


It is easy to see how we’ve become unplugged. Apple’s iOS and Android do it; Adobe Flash Player 10.2 and AIR technologies as well. HTML5 starts becoming more popular and supported on many portable platforms and other companies like Blackberry or Nokia follow in close. There are over 400,000 applications in the App Store, an incredible growth from 500 in the beginning. Android has around 400,000 applications and the numbers are increasing. The year started with around 300,000 apps for both platforms and ends with, very possibly, close to 1 million of them. Android included Flash from the 2.2 Froyo version and this made the portable devices running on the open-source platform even more popular. And you know what the good part of this is? That you don’t need anything besides a WiFi or 3G/4G connection to access them from all over the World.

Why do we talk about apps when we’re talking about browsers? Because if you think about it, the applications are nothing less than websites which are accessed without a browser. And more than 10 million of them were downloaded in 2011. That’s a huge amount of users who accessed this information from a portable device, avoiding using a browser. And it should be a clear sign about the future of the web. The apps are more intuitive, faster and easier to use, therefore they are preferred to Chrome, Mozilla, Safari or any other application. Another advantage is that the apps can be accessed from everywhere, while for a browser you not only need internet, but also a computer.

Smartphone and the Internet


A smartphone will also always allow you access to the internet, so why have a big laptop when you can have a pocket device that can do the same? A study made two years ago concluded that by 2013 mobile browsing will be more popular than desktop browsing. With the usage of smartphones growing by 110% in the US in 2009 and by 148% all over the world, this seems quite possible. Also, the younger internet users get educated in the world of smartphones, meaning that the computer will mean even less for them than it does for us.

This could be great news for designers – up til now everybody had to have a webpage, soon everybody will have to have a mobile device version as well. More work, more money for the design industry. China for example is a huge industry with tremendous potential. Not many people there have tablets or smartphones, but many say in 3-4 years everyone there will own one. With a market of almost 1 billion mobile subscribers, there will be a huge need for mobile websites for the companies and business individuals. So, bottom line, the fact that web browsers are on a downhill is not that bad for us – we will still have a lot of work anyway.

Right now there are more than 300 million mobile internet users in China and this is around 60% of all mobile and desktop internet users all over Europe – we’re talking huge numbers here. We’re talking about the Chinese equivalent of eBay, Taobao on which the transactions for the last year totaled roughly $60 billion; and this is while eBay was delighted with a total of only $2 billion. All of these things happen while the major internet providers already update the speeds to 4G. You see where I’m heading? As designers, we might be concerned that our jobs will disappear in 15 years but really, who knows how many other challenges will appear for us by then?

However, the truth is that it always takes up to five years after a new web technology appears until people get a hold of it and learn how it really works. Smartphones are huge today, but I don’t think they reached their maximum potential yet. There is still a lot yet to come and just because we think we know everything, it doesn’t mean we actually do. Web browsers are still popular and widely used, but they will be a thing of the past at some point in time, because nothing lives forever on the web. There is no such thing as a technology which didn’t improve since it was released (unless it was released recently).

Conclusion


The bottom line of this article is that even if the browsers disappear in several years (or at least their use will decrease), there will still be a lot of work for designers and developers. The internet is almost fed up with designs and experts, in five years time it will all move on portable devices. This means, as stated before, much more work for us, both for desktop and portable devices. All the technologies will be available on portable devices as well at some point in time and designing for them will be maybe even more challenging than designing for desktop use.

The beginners of today are the experts of tomorrow. We all know what’s coming in the short term, so why not try to become better at this while letting the current experts do their work? Who knows, in five years it might be you who earns the big bucks from all kind of clients and, as its normal, there will be others taking your place in the “follower seat”. The increasing use of smartphones and tablets bring a new taste in the design industry, with many new challenges yet to come. Get ready to take on all of them!

iOS 5 Lion-Style Dashboard Concept

Another concept of widgets — this time to mirror the dashboard setup in Mac OS X. The implementation is similar to my other widget video. However, in this concept, widgets and apps are separated.

Basically, you can consider this layout as having two sides. You have your apps and folders where they have been. But when you slide over to the old Spotlight Search screen, the wallpaper shifts and you’re taken into a Dashboard screen similar to the kind found in Mac OS X. You can have many pages of widgets (exactly the same way as the app home screens, but in the opposite direction). Widgets can come with downloaded applications and can be different sizes. Shown are my designed widgets for Facebook and Twitter.

What 9,000 TV Channel Logos Looks Like

channellogos

There are thousands upon thousands of TV channels available to watch worldwide.

Unfortunately it’s nearly impossible to fully grasp the absolutely massive number of television channels out there today because we only ever see them on our TV guides or randomly around the internet. For each channel, there’s a logo design that is easily recognizable and often memorable. Here, for your viewing pleasure, are more than 9,000 TV channel logos.

Of course, because some channels use identical logos across different stations and countries, some duplication has occurred (so we’re just going to round down to 9,000 even). You can even see a high resolution version of these logos starting here, but be warned: the large versions will take some time to load.

MUST READ

Long Live the Redesign by iamFinch

coke

In a nutshell, the concept he put forward is: Great designers adjust an existing work with little disruption of the foundational design for a goal or purpose. The end result is a modification to the design that improves the user experience. Good designers, on the other hand, recreate existing work focusing on the aesthetic, with a misunderstood notion that it will always improve it. However they end up disrupting and/or damaging the user’s experience making no real impact with the effort.

Design Professionalism by Andy Rutledge

The designer’s guide to taking back your profession.

Each year enthusiastic and passionate design students enter the industry they’ve long admired—one that they’ve worked hard to prepare for and have strived to be worthy of—in time only to meet with disillusionment. Why?…

Sustainable, Not Pixel Perfect

sustain-design

We were approached by Zappos (read our case study) to reskin their “Zeta” site (basically a living wireframe). Our brief was to redesign the pages without bringing new thinking to the structure of the page, functionality, or interaction. Our job was to interpret what they had already built and to align the design with the Zappos brand; it is something they had struggled to do for several years.

Don’t redesign on spec by Yaron Schoen

Art, by nature, is not utilitarian. It does not concern itself with descriptions but leaves its viewer with the option to develop his/her own interpretation of what he/she sees. Art is its own means to an end, it does not solve problems for its viewer and it is without a specific goal. It is a reaction to an observation made by the artist that is sometimes processed through an emotional filter and sometimes remains in pure documentation form.
