Graphic Mint 2018 Highlights
2018 was another year full of experiences and growth for Graphic Mint. We worked with some amazing clients – both old and new. We were thrilled to win a Spider Award for Homelight, our conceptual app designed to help families who find themselves homeless. Finally, this year was also our 10th anniversary which we marked by sponsoring Defuse. Have a look back with us on an eventful year.
What Is The Value Of An Ecosystem Map?
As User Experience (UX) Designers we have a myriad of tools in our toolbox to help visualise and understand systems we are designing for. The one that provides the most value is the Ecosystem Map. It helps us to see the bigger picture, providing a great visual overview of the project’s “ecosystem”. For our clients, it helps them think about their role within the landscape of the work they do and the ultimate impact they are trying to have. So what is an Ecosystem Map and how can your business get value from it?
November 7th saw Defuse 2018 on in Dublin and Graphic Mint was proud to be the main partner for the event. The night was also an occasion to mark ten years of Defuse and Graphic Mint. 12 speakers in total gave 12 explosive talks through 20 slides, with 15 seconds per slide. The speakers discussed a broad range of topics like Augmented Reality (AR), Content Creation, Learner Experience Design, storytelling through senses and how to be a rebel in Design. Three talks, in particular, stood out for us.
The Jodel Model. The future of social media?
In this time and era, almost everyone knows the saying “the internet never forgets”. Everything posted online can be revived again no matter how long ago it was posted. Indeed, the internet never forgets which is why Users are becoming more cautious about the information they post online. So would it be possible for us to Design an app or social media platform that fully safeguards User privacy?
