Recently, I was tasked with creating an infographic on the importance of design for UX. I’m pretty proud of the results. Check it out after the jump.
Sometimes, the process of design is hard to describe or put into words. How exactly do you write an article explaining how you created something cool? You don’t. Instead, you capture the process and share it with the world in video form! We here at Rocksauce Studios have been hard at work on a new group chat app called Trotter (don’t worry, we’ll let you in on all of the cool details soon enough) and I wanted to give you a taste of what it took to create the app’s icon. The entire process took a great deal of hard work in Adobe Illustrator, but you can watch the entire process in less than two minutes after the jump

If you own an iPhone, chances are strong that you’ve had to deal with a broken screen. If you haven’t, you need to be counting the days. That kind of bliss can’t last long. Naturally, the inevitable occurred: the glass on my iPhone 4 broke an I had to see about getting it replaced.
First, I hit Google. Then, I began to make phone calls. Then, I began to drive. I called or visited about ten different businesses, but each of them managed to be just out of my desired price range, with the average price ending up around $120 Naturally, this was after they told me $90 on the phone. Sometimes, the asking price ended up hitting $140. Eventually, I just had to give into the basic facts of the situation: I was going to drop over a hundred bucks on a tiny piece of glass. Such is life.
