INSTAGRAM.

Vous connaissez… ? Ah, j’oubliais un détail, vous ne connaissez Instagram que si vous avez un iPhone. iPhone 4 de préférence.

Cette petite application fait un malheur en ce moment, avec des milliers d’inscrits de par le monde. C’est tout simplement un “outil” de partage de vos photos prises sur l’iPhone.
Juste avant de poster votre meilleure œuvre, vous pouvez la remixer avec des filtres d’effets. … Et attendre les commentaires de vos meilleurs 3 500 amis… : )

Et une communauté de plus!

Mon pseudo sur Instagram : 10dier

Polyvore, un outil fantastique.

The Zoho Notebook

August 12th, 2010 No comments

What a Tool!

ZOHO Notebook is definitely a good idea to share your contents on the web. It’s almost a website building service if you know how to manage all your stuff and a bit of knowledge (Embedded codes, Url, Rss links etc.).

You can build how many Notebooks you want. Showing your portfolio as a designer and be able to share it with collaborators or contacts is a great possibility for example, working on the same document is another one; well, it depends really on your ability to find ideas that suits your needs. But the tools are there. Waiting for your imagination…

What to do with an iPhone?

June 10th, 2010 No comments

One silly Question: What can we do with an iPhone?

Most of you will answer that we can call with it. Yes. Errr… Yes. But it’s boring to use it just for calling right?

The right answer is: a billion of things. This is why it’s the best smartphone ever. ( I’m not addicted! ) The genius idea was to create a phone that won’t be just a phone. 2 iPhones are exactly the same from the exterior. What is important is inside… The Apps. Then you can have your unique iPhone. It’s an extension of you.; )

How do I use it:

  • I use it for calling
  • To receive/send my emails
  • To schedule my appointments
  • To get all my contacts from Linkedin, Facebook, Gmail etc in ONE place
  • To record sounds, notes, ideas (mic)
  • To read my RSS feeds
  • To see all my photos, videos, movies
  • To listen to my music
  • To get a map
  • To text/ SMS
  • To take photos/Videos
  • To Chat (Yak Messenger)
  • To be on Skype
  • To be on LinkedinFacebookMSNFriendfeedTwitter
  • To Blog with WordPressTumblr
  • To send a video where I am (Qik)
  • To get all my notes from the Mac (Evernote)
  • To share my location (Brightkite)
  • To create/retouch my photos (HipstamaticClassicPanTiltshiftGenCamerabagDXP,Autostitch, LofiGeniusFotomuseAddLib…)
  • To create/retouch my videos (Qik VideoHolywoodFXVintageMakerSilentFilmAnimoto,ReelDirector…)
  • To draw (BrushesSketchBookTypePhotoEasternDrawing…)
  • To post photos (Flickit Pro…)
  • To create music (Noise.ioBeatmakerFlourishBloomiDrumOttoVoicePlusRJDJ,BleepSynthNanoloopProLoop…)
  • To wake up (NIght Stand, Alarm Clock…)
  • To write ideas (MomentoiThoughts…)
  • To choose a color for my creations (myPantone..)
  • To read Word documents, PDF (Quickoffice)
  • To see what on TV (Télérama TV (French))
  • To identify what music is on the radio (Shazam, SoundHound…)
  • To Buzz (Google Buzz)
  • To see where I am (Boussole)
  • To play with games (Spore creaturesFieldrunnersSimCityMonsterDoodleJump,DoodleArmy, BIA2…)
  • To play and create fantastic backgrounds (Bubble Harp, Gravilux, ChromocamTurnAround, SpawnHD, Pulsar, iPsychedelic, Musophobia…)
  • To see what books I bought (MyBookshelf)
  • To see the Movies I saw in my life (Movies)
  • To save all my passwords (1Password)
  • To make the tea (mySelf) I’m kidding here.

And then, you can MIX!!! Create Music with the sounds of one of your game etc. Etc. Endless… ; )

And you? What do you do with yours?

Photos of my Work in 2000-2002

June 4th, 2010 No comments

Last time I found some brochures of my work 10 years before! Amazing. I know a lot of designers and also HR people will “recommend” to show always the latest works… Well they don’t know What is design…

Design is alive. And when it’s on the web, it’s double alive! It has his own “life”, and will grow without you, everywhere, anywhere; people will copy it, transform it, keep it for reference, use it. Design is alive and it’s good. Good to keep a trace of what you have done too. Because there is always a before and an after, it’s (at least for me) always interesting to see evolution of trends. It’s culture, design culture. 10 years before in France color trends was this kind of Orange, almost fluorescent one. People was also using a lot Pantone metallic ink. That’s very funny. And funnier is to see how all this design is a kind of outdated. So what is the recipe of eternal design then? What made the success of Gutenberg in 1455…? What about the Bauhaus?
Well, I don’t have all the answers… But one idea is that simplicity is one of the key… Minimalistic design. It’s like cars in a movie, you can guess easily which time a movie has been shoot in looking for the cars in it; more difficult if you DON’T have any car right? Same for design… If you want your design to be kind of “famousForEver”, use a minimum of elements. “Intemporel“. No flashy colors, no fancy fonts! Use Helvetica Neue, (love it) or Swiss 721 Thin font, forget Comic Sans.

I will try to follow this advice… ; )
