Hello Knowsis

So a a few terms back I interned with Knowsis. This has been by far the best experience of this whole school year, and I’m happy to announce I’ll be joining Knowsis as User Experience Designer & Developer!

Bye Bye LCC

So I’ve just started interning with Knowsis who are:

Briding the Information Gap Between the Global Financial Sector and the Social Web.

For some this might sounds like some mumbo-jumbo, but I understand what they’re trying to do, and I believe they got themselves a brilliant idea. I just want to be a part of it, and I am enjoying it a lot so far. I am working as a User Experience Designer Intern.

Do graphic design students become more creative during their academic course?

I have finished my ITC Report, and have gone through the process of discovering if graphic design students become more creative. An interesting question, and an even more interesting journey to discovering the answer.

The subject and assignment required a word-heavy report, so if you’re interested in the subject—as a student, teacher, or design practitioner—please sit down and have a read.

I often get asked if I can teach someone how to make a website. There are a lot of great tools online, and I’ve found a new one as well: Dash!

This is the best anti-smoking campaign

This video has been around for a while, but I’ve just come across it.

It’s amazing what a difference design can make, when it’s done right, with statistics showing that stop-smoking-helplines have received a noticeable increase in calls (I wonder how many actually stopped smoking though).

What makes this campaign work? The use of an insight, in this case Adults know smoking is harmful, but don’t remind themselves of this fact. Achieving an outcome which makes adults remind themselves that smoking is quite the challenge, but I believe they did a good job!
