Toronto Business Improvement Area Wireflows

Working on a project for a Toronto neighbourhood Business Improvement Area was a great opportunity to show off the power of wireflows. Wireflows are a combination of classical wireframes that are incorporated into the user or data flows. They offer a deeper insight into capital design decisions, as well as provide a way to test the basic interactions. Continue reading “Toronto Business Improvement Area Wireflows”

Visualizing e-commerce Design & Development Process Using Workflow Diagram

The Challenge

Workflow diagrams help large organizations deal with complex workflows in their day-to-day operations. Information travels between people, teams and systems and it can be a real challenge to have a clear overview of how things are done. What was going in the previous stage? What happens next in the design and development cycle?  This usually creates gaps in communication, which in turn extends the time needed to complete the cycle and nobody likes that.

The Internet’s Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz

Aaron Swartz

Aaron Swartz (November 8, 1986 – January 11, 2013) was a child prodigy, an activist and a programmer responsible for many of the improvements in the modern-day information exchange, including RSS, Creative Commons, Reddit and many more organisations fighting for freedom of the internet. Aaron dedicated his short but very fruitful life to making the public information accessible to the public. His convictions ultimately took a toll on his own life, but his legacy continues to live on through his work and the work of other people inspired by his actions.

This documentary is about his life and work and as such it is an important piece of the puzzle for anyone that cares about the freedom of information and ultimately the freedom of human kind.

When it’s an Olympics logo, everybody has an opinion. Not surprising after seeing the shake and the stir London 2012 Olympics logo caused. And, of course, it is Japanese design we are talking about and Japanese design should be ground breaking, especially for the events like these. It is supposed to be a peak of the designers career — making a logo for the biggest and most famous sporting event in the world. It comes with a great burden and even greater responsibility to shine and make something memorable. Some kind of controversy was expected, taking into account that there always is one and the design is… well, different :) Continue reading “Official Logo for Tokyo 2020 Olympics Dissected”

Norient MusikFilm Festival Poster 2015

Norient Poster 2015

Another great cooperation with Norient. This year the task was to design one of the sentences illustrating concepts for the Seismographic Sounds Exhibition. It will travel along Europe alongside 8 other posters from artists around the world.
I decided to make this years poster more vibrant and connected to the Space Village concept that has been in my head for years and popping out from time to time. It is a playful combination of old photos from the Commons (a pool of photo resources I like to use whenever possible), paired with thick color combinations, clean lines and modern typography (Gotham) for an out-of-this-world mix.
