[Sponsor] App.itize.us

Appitizeus

app​.itize​.us is a hand­picked and selec­tive assort­ment of the most well designed apps.

There are some amaz­ing appli­ca­tions and design­ers who’ve made them, yet recog­ni­tion is dif­fi­cult and the apps are hard to find due to the sheer vol­ume being released every day.

Our mis­sion is to show­case new, emerg­ing and cur­rent tal­ent in the app space with a focus on design sim­plic­ity, ease of use, and high aes­thetic calibre.

Cull App

Cull App

I’ve been work­ing on an app with Jor­dan Halvorsen called Cull, and we’re get­ting close to launch­ing it. Cull essen­tially allows you to view your web stats from ser­vices like Mint, Google Ana­lyt­ics, Twit­ter, Face­book, Vimeo and more. It presents the data in a sim­ple, beau­ti­ful way. It’s all gesture-based, and very sim­ple to use. I will be shar­ing more of the design very soon.

We’re in the alpha stage, and a beta should be ready very soon. We’ll be look­ing for beta testers, so sign up for our newslet­ter, or fol­low us on Twit­ter to get the lat­est details.

[Sponsor] 11° Dock

As high­lighted by Bill Mog­gridge 11° is the most ergonomic angle for typ­ing. This is why the iPads’ Smart­Cover angles the iPad to exactly 11°. The Offi­cial iPhone Dock angles the iPhone to an unus­able angle.

The 11° Dock is a sim­ple solu­tion as it holds the iPhone at this opti­mal angle. It ampli­fies the sound from the device, has a fin­ger grip on the back for easy removal and sup­ports the iPhone 4/4S/5 and 5S.

To find out more about this please see our Indiegogo page.

Here is another small design stu­dio based out of Lon­don, that’s pro­duc­ing amaz­ing work. Socio’s work is sim­ply stun­ning. Not a sin­gle piece is sub­par, and the level of detail that went into every project is astonishing.

This is the kind of work that you look at and makes you think “man, I suck!”. It def­i­nitely made me feel that way, dammit! But that’s a good thing. I think every once in awhile we all need some­one or some­thing to let us think that we suck. It motivates.

Why do we assume that sim­ple is good? Because with phys­i­cal prod­ucts, we have to feel we can dom­i­nate them. As you bring order to com­plex­ity, you find a way to make the prod­uct defer to you. Sim­plic­ity isn’t just a visual style. It’s not just min­i­mal­ism or the absence of clut­ter. It involves dig­ging through the depth of the com­plex­ity. To be truly sim­ple, you have to go really deep. For exam­ple, to have no screws on some­thing, you can end up hav­ing a prod­uct that is so con­vo­luted and so com­plex. The bet­ter way is to go deeper with the sim­plic­ity, to under­stand every­thing about it and how it’s man­u­fac­tured. You have to deeply under­stand the essence of a prod­uct in order to be able to get rid of the parts that are not essential.

Manuals 1: Design & Identity Guidelines

Unit Editions Manuals 1

Unit Edi­tions just announced a new book titled Man­u­als 1 Design & Iden­tity Guide­lines. It’s a study of cor­po­rate iden­tity design man­u­als from the 1960s to early 1980s. The book includes man­u­als cre­ated for NASA, Lufthansa, British Steel, NYC Tran­sit Author­ity, Cana­dian Broad­cast­ing Cor­po­ra­tion, ABC, and more. The ABC man­ual is from my col­lec­tion that I’ve contributed.

I’ve been really look­ing for­ward to this book. Man­u­als are such a great learn­ing resources because they’re not only great to look at, but they also give you insight into the ratio­nale and think­ing behind each sys­tem. You get to expe­ri­ence what the design­ers were thinking.

The fore­word was writ­ten by Mas­simo Vignelli and the book includes text from Adrian Shaugh­nessy, NASA designer Richard Danne, Greg D’Onofrio and Patri­cia Belen of Dis­play, Armin Vit, Sean Perkins and John Lloyd.

Avail­able in March and you can pre-order now.
