  • Posted to Google Has a New Logo, Sep 01, 2015

    It has some freshness at the same time I think it has bent too much to be a generic look - maybe there are reasons behind why it is looking so. In the blog, you can see many variations on the wall, all of which was scrapped by the final concept.

    Everything feels nice, except the circles animating to become a cross edged font irks me. So I tried to see how it would look if the circles were not constrained to be cut off at the final frame. Just posted a shot of Dribbble with that : Google New Logo - Exploration on Dribbble

    I cannot call it good or bad as there might be a lot of brainstorming and hours of hard work behind it. So ending the note with that would be ungracious. I hope this solves some problems that the old logo had. Ultimately, that is the reason of designs/redesigns - to solve problems.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Best books to hone your design skills?, Jul 29, 2015

    Amazing suggestions of books expected in this thread. I cannot point any particular book to be the best, because there are a ton of them out there.

    Here are few, which I can quickly recall

    100 Ideas that Changed Graphic Design

    The Design of Everyday Things

    Creative Confidence

    Also I am trying to gather a list of the best books over at Pixel Hours

  • Posted to Photoshop CC 2015 is copying Sketch and it’s a good thing, Jun 17, 2015

    Well as a matter of fact - it's not really easy to agree to the point that Adobe has copied Sketch. Many comments here already proves the point. But keeping all the criticisms aside - I think Adobe has really improved the workflow for screen designers with the new update.

    Whether you go with Sketch or PS its a personal choice depending on the scenarios and type of work you do.

    Comparing both seems very naive, given the number of years since its existence. Each tool have their own pros and cons.I think we should look at it from that perspective and enjoy doing our work than getting distracted about the tools that we use.

  • Posted to Show DN: Pixel Hours - Curated visual bookmarks collection for designers & developers., Apr 14, 2015

    One of my side project, which I was working since a long time.

    Gathering all those useful links that many of you might already have in the bookmarks. But with Pixel Hours, my aim is to collect the best bookmarks together in a single place so that everyone can access it, when in need.

    Every link related to tutorials, articles, interviews, tips & tricks, resource - just about anything you can think of which will help you be a better designer/developer.

    Learn, Share & Improve.
