Above: EPIC/DERMIS™ UI/UX and software design. This software is currently in production and can be used to create and edit 2D/3D sprite sheets (like Minecraft for example) by painting directly onto 3D models (poly painting).
EPIC/DERMIS™ is the most easy to use yet powerful software available for 2D/3D pixel painting.
The software features a super simple organic painting experience. (because we are sick of mathematical non-creative approaches to design, that are completely divorced from designers and the design process). This software will be available on both iOS and Windows PC platforms.
The design: The design features a minimal Swiss/metro style UI, with simple to navigate menus and an expertly design, intuitive user friendly UX that is both easy and fun to use.
Stringent planning went into the layout and tool set to ensure the best design experience available, our core focus is fluid organic usability.
Release date: TBA
Platforms: iOS (initial release) Android, and eventually Windows.
Above: I was assigned and challenged by 4i Mobile Applications to create a practical application for use with the Apple iphone. The criteria was an app that by design needed to “solve a problem” or improve the users life (to a certain degree).
As a result I decided to address one of my favorite products of all time, Netflix. This example was an exercise to demonstrate, the understanding of UX and practical, functional design theory.
In this example I utilized a theoretical Netflix API to create a integrated app and browser remote, making it far easier to navigate browser based Netflix as well as offer a ton of additional features, predominantly “defined search criteria” as well as special category options, on the fly rating and browse by film star rating.
Mockups: The design required a few basic wire-frames (seen above) to ensure a smooth UX, which I created in Inkscape as part of my rapid wire-frame kit.
Polish: Aesthetically I decided to run with a modern flat UI, featuring a few subtle skeuomorphic elements, the design includes elegant long drop 5 o’ clock shadows to add some depth to the overall look and feel. The base of the control surface features a subtle matte “rubberized texture” look, to further enhance the overall skeuomorphic appearance.
I decided to stick with a flatter variation of the previously see red that was featured as part of Netflix’s previous corporate ID (before Netflix updated their CID mid 2014).
