Choosing the perfect Typeface – Cucumbertown’s journey | Crafting Cucumbertown Update: Cucumbertown is in midst of a design overhaul. We are now focusing on mobile and web and the design changes are not yet reflected on the site. Subscribe, if you want to keep yourself updated. The journey is exciting and we are chronicling everything. Typographic conscience hit the web design world quite some time ago. At Cucumbertown, I was tasked with the redesign of the whole product experience; I wanted to make this process a bit more rational and goal oriented. Outline our Type Persona Cucumbertown’s persona is a 26-35 year old working exec. We explored typographic patterns on magazines, packaging and lifestyle products to define our persona and started looking for typefaces with those characteristics. I went all the way from collecting images on Pinterest to physically correlating product specimens from the real world. The end result of this exercise defined our desired Cucumbertown Typographic style to few key keywords- Elite, Informal, Playful and Subtle. Field testing 1.

Measure of an Innovator: The Innovator ... | Experience SAP HANA Every once in a while, great products come along that change our lives. Products that move us, change our behavior, even our way of thinking. Products that are beautiful, appealing, intuitive, that connect with us emotionally. Products that are well engineered, well designed and that create tremendous economic value for companies. Companies big and small manage to bring such great products to life, albeit infrequently. At SAP, I have been reflecting on HANA's amazing success. My conclusion: the essence of this experience, its distillation, lies in Design Thinking. Over and over again during the development of HANA and in its early days, and now having led its early adoption and many amazing successes, I have seen firsthand that design-thinking, with these three dimensions, is at the heart of product success. Generally speaking, the farther one is from the product, its end-users and the commercial aspects of a product, the worse the situation is. So here goes: I further argue that:

Palimpsest – Collective memory through Virtual Reality / @ialab Created at the Bartlett School of Architecture / Interactive Architecture, Palimpsest uses 3D scanning and virtual reality to record urban spaces and the communities that live in them. The project aims to question/test the implication if the past, present, and future city could exist in the same place, layering personal stories and local histories of the city at a 1:1 scale. In 1998, researchers discovered that mathematical proofs by Archimedes had been overwritten with biblical texts by monks in the 13th century. Documents such as this, with previous erasures still visible beneath the primary text, are known as palimpsests. Their first initiative, The Camden Palimpsest, uses the UK High Speed Rail 2 project as a case study. In order to create the palimpsest, the team relied on 4 types of 3D data capture. To capture at the urban scale, they primarily used LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) scanners in collaboration with Fiona Zisch from ScanLab. Project Page | Interactive Architecture

Transport | Priestmangoode - Product, Transport and Environment Design Moving Platforms is a concept for the future of rail travel. We have been designing high speed trains around the world for a few years now. Our experience of various systems has led us to conclude that it is hugely inefficient to run a new 21st century high tech, high speed train service on a 19th century infrastructure that was invented for steam trains. As a result, Paul has come up with an ingenious solution that can potentially revolutionize the rail industry the way the internet revolutionized the way we communicate. Moving Platforms is a totally inter-connected rail infrastructure where local trams connect to a network of non-stop high speed trains enabling passengers to travel from their local stop to a local address at their destination (even in another country) without getting off a train. ‘I’m under no illusion this is a big idea’ says Paul, ‘but we have to think big.
