Redesigning the Alfa Bank mobile app

Redesigning the Alfa Bank mobile app AoiroStudioMar 19, 2019 Designers Stas Aristov, Alya Prigotska and Thanh Do decided to redesign the Alfa Bank mobile app. Let's take a closer look! I like the transition of the account overview, it's expressed through two different views with what we would call the "dashboard" and another view where you can select a specific account, send money to someone and your transaction history. The overall UI is clean and the right...

Going With It and a blast from the past

Going With It  Oil on wood, 8" x 8," $330. I can't seem to photograph this painting without getting glare.  Posting it anyway, better to post than not...  I've been working on a side project that requires looking up my old press.  Was I ever so young and dewy?? I remember the day the photo was taken. I had been painting "multiple originals" for a company that sold to health and hospitality industries...  (also working at Square as a digital artist for video games) The company sent a p...

The Akula’s design looks heavily shark-inspired, and for a good reason

If you’re going to call your car Akula, or literally Russian for shark, you better follow up on that promise. Designed by British supercar company Ginetta, the Akula pretty much stood out from all the other cars at the Geneva Motor Show. After all, with something that looks so over-the-top, your eyes are bound to gravitate to it. In fact, when asked why the Akula was designed the way it was, chairman Lawrence Tomlinson commented: “The concept behind the Akula was to build something truly indiv...

How Nightclub Culture Drives Popular Culture

Anyone with an Instagramaccount, a fashion magazine subscription or an interest in social activism is ultimately engaging with club culture. Nightlife is like an angel investor in pop culture, silently incubating grassroots movements and social moments, and since the first iterations of the disco, clubs have been a breeding ground for cultural experimentation. – The Guardian

Is my gadget waterproof? Demystifying the water+dust resistant IP standards

AI Is Not Just Changing How Scientific Research Is Done, It’s Changing The Scientific Method

Some scientists see generative modeling and other new techniques simply as power tools for doing traditional science. But most agree that AI is having an enormous impact, and that its role in science will only grow. Brian Nord, an astrophysicist at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory who uses artificial neural networks to study the cosmos, is among those who fear there’s nothing a human scientist does that will be impossible to automate. “It’s a bit of a chilling thought,” he said. – Quanta ...

Activists trying to prevent the vaquita porpoise from extinction

Researchers just confirmed the sad news that only around 10 vaquita porpoises remain in the wild. Unless immediate steps are taken, these sea creatures will undoubtedly become extinct over the next few years. Vaquita porpoises are among the ocean’s smallest cetaceans and they only reside in the northern Gulf of California. The update on population numbers comes after news of the first vaquita death this year. Scientists are expected to release more information on that front later this week. Rel...

Some Concerns About “Cultural Democracy” And What It Means For Artists And The Arts

Cultural democracy is, in its essence, anti-elitist. It denounces the superiority of one form of culture over others and includes amateur arts, lifestyles, folk creativity, and traditional practices. Diversity and free choice are key, and culture should be available as an integral part of everyday life. It was the kind of thing I benefited from in my childhood. It comes as no surprise that the term “cultural democracy” is still on the table as the buzz answer to the figures that show only a sma...

Exclusive: The Original ‘RoboCop’ Poster Was Actually a Painting, and Now You Can Buy It As a Metallic Print

Part man, part machine, all cop. That’s the tagline you’ll find on the original teaser poster for the 1980s favorite RoboCop.

Prediction: Half Of All Colleges Will Go Out Of Business In Ten Years

Compare Amazon’s ability to deliver what you want, how you want it, and when you want it, to that of the average college or university. Or even to the growing number of online universities, hybrid universities… and especially to the “traditional” institutions that offer online learning options. Amazon would crush those folks. – Inc.
