I have been experimenting with design lately and have learned a lot. There are so many do’s and don’ts for design that will break you or make you. As the famous quote from Steve Jobs goes “Deciding what not to do is more important than deciding what to do”. So, in this blog post I am pointing out 5 don’ts for design:
- Do not copy design: Designers when designing, let that be website design, product design or any sort of design, tend to look for the best designs out there. Many designers or companies copy designs which tend to be the best in the market. But if you look at their stats after launching their product, most of them failed to achieve what they thought they will be. In short their whole great-copied design didn’t work for them. The reason being that designers or design companies do their research related to the product they are working on. They spend days, weeks, months or sometimes even years going back and forth on few design ideas. The research also includes their target users, demographic, and other parameters. Once they collect and analyze that data, they design accordingly.
Take away: Great design are there to inspire, not to copy. Do some research on your product and on its other parameters and then design accordingly.
There is so much fucking NOPE on the internet today. From Woody Allen apologists, to assholes seriously lacking in compassion for addicts — I’m taking the rest of the day offline. Shut down my laptop and turn off my phone as self-care.
Dopo l’esperienza positiva dello scorso anno abbiamo deciso che anche quest’anno Cagliari avrà il suo Open Data Day, aderendo alla giornata mondiale il 22 Febbraio 2014. In contemporanea con tutto il mondo, sarà una giornata per sensibilizzare, mostrare, fare, scoprire, creare, confrontarsi sulla cultura degli open data.
Presto vi forniremo dettagli sul luogo dell’evento, orari e programma.
Stay data tuned! :)
