Each flower is made from a single sheet of paper, not from a square though, but from a pentagon. I would recommend using fairly thick and strong paper (80-90 gsm) to fold them – Tant origami paper will be just the right choice!

Of course we're right. You're probably a student and students (as we all well know) are lazy and sleep for upwards of 15 hours a day. Don't try and deny it. You're probably also a little impoverished due to all that nasty 'not being in full time employment' business. So, we're assuming that you're always looking for an opportunity to spruce up your room. Well genius doesn't cost a thing and when we say these ideas are genius we of course mean that (most of them) are absolute 24 carat gold gold genius.

A Look Inside Design at Good

This week we interviewed Hannah Strobel, a Principal User Experience Designer at Good Technology in the San Francisco Bay Area. Tell us a little bit about what you do. I work on one of our products, Good Share, which is a secure file sharing application with SharePoint integration. Basically it can be seen as Dropbox for enterprises where critical data is fully secured and protected. We support all major platforms, such as Microsoft, Android, and iOS. The other part of my job is mentoring and supporting colleagues, and bringing structure into our UX group which means setting standards, reviewing and signing off on designs before they go into development, implementing standard documentation and defining more advanced patterns and a visual language for Good Technology products.
