Each thing in an app is actually a sequence and the motion is your guide. For each button that is clicked and when there is a transition on the screen, there is some story that follows. If you want to delete an item, it is probably the most destructive action; therefore you will have to make it respond accordingly. You should not make the item vanish with any binary action. Put it off your screen or even put it back to the depth of the device to be a digital scrap.

User Is the Prime Focus

The prime focus while designing is the user. Every change and every innovation is done keeping in mind how the user will take it. Well-designed animations make the experience feel crafted.

Only an expert has the ability to recognise the invisibility of animations, which is equally important as designing them.

Jul 18, 2016     No Comments    Posted under: Graphic Design

Trends come and go, but it’s hard to predict the exact time. In the words of Madeleine who works as a graphic artist, “A trend never simply emerges for a single year and then disappears in a puff of smoke. Instead, an aesthetic becomes popular gradually, even mysteriously, over time before fizzling out slowly without much notice at all.”

You might have heard that “Everything old is new again.” So, anything that was a rage years ago comes back in full force after a certain period of time with minor changes to keep in tune with the time. For example, the modern home designing style that was specific of 1920-1950s is so well blended with the modern style today that both styles are frequently used interchangeably.

A Look into What the Future of Logo Designing Will Be Like

Jun 6, 2016     No Comments    Posted under: Graphic Design

A logo conveys something very meaningful to the people who see it. It is something, which should not appear funny or way too complex. Simple logos are people’s favorites most of the time as they will be positioned in their minds. If you are a businessman or if you own a company, you would obviously want to create a brand consciousness among the people, and that happens with a logo.

No wonder they charge a huge amount for each assignment. This requires a lot of creativity and if you need to be creative, you will need that space and time. Many companies these days just come up with some random logo that looks fine, but most of them fail to convey the actual essence of the business.
