I need to get out of the city and ride my bike
Fonts are wayfinding apps for emotions
“Flows are made out of individual interactions. A screen offers some possibilities and the user chooses one. Then something happens, and the screen changes. It’s an ongoing conversation. Each moment in a flow is like a coin with two sides. The screen is showing something on one side, and the user is reacting on the other side. My flow diagrams illustrate this two-sided nature with a bar. Above the bar is what the user sees. Below the bar is what they do. An arrow connects the user’s action to a new screen with yet another action.”
In collaboration with Adam Leddin from the brilliant bicycle blog, Cycle Exif, I created the artwork for these MA x CE embroidered patches. If you like cycling and adventures prove it to the world by sticking one of these on your rucksack. Available now with free worldwide shipping here.
Tips on disguising a web app as a native app :
- Avoid replicating the default OS styling and interactions
- If you aim for a fully custom, native app look and feel, you’ll be more likely to succeed
- Only animate properties that are GPU accelerated
- Don’t try to implement custom scrolling
- Design you interface around the technology you have, not the technology you wish you had
- Use something like FastClick (for performance)
- Use appcache (for performance)
- Spend hours—hours!—mashing on your app with your big, clumsy fingers
