Ikea goes green with a cardboard digital camera 27 April 2012Last updated at 10:47 ET The camera can be recycled just like any other piece of cardboard Swedish furniture retailer Ikea has revealed an eco-friendly digital camera made almost entirely from cardboard. Having snapped 40 photos, users can dispose of it along with any other recyclable materials. The device is a part of a campaign around Ikea's PS at Home project, aimed at getting buyers to share images of their furniture on the chain's website. Called Knappa, the camera will not be sold but rather given away to consumers in selected stores around the world. It was created by a Swedish designer Jesper Kouthoofd, runs on two AA batteries, and connects to a computer with help of a swing-out USB connector. It is Ikea's most recent step towards consumer electronics after the retailer developed a home theatre line, but the firm's spokesperson told the BBC that it was not "a move into selling any digital equipment". Going green Ikea itself has unveiled green initiatives in the past.

I set myself a challenge. I wanted to test the limits of design’s ability to solve problems — big and small. To do this, I left the comfort of my computer chair and set out into the unknown. On my own shoestring budget, from grimy backstreet hostels to bustling cities, I travelled Europe attempting to solve a different social problem that I observed every day. The adventure taught me an unbelievable amount about design’s power to solve problems and about my own capacities as a designer.

Again, the way in which these principles are applied affects the expressive content, or the message of the work. The principles are: Balance is the concept of visual equilibrium, and relates to our physical sense of balance. Symmetrical balance can be described as having equal "weight" on equal sides of a centrally placed fulcrum. There is a variant of symmetrical balance called approximate symmetry in which equivalent but not identical forms are arranged around the fulcrum line. Asymmetrical balance, also called informal balance, is more complex and difficult to envisage. Whether the solution is simple or complex, some form of balance can be identified in most successful compositions. Proportion refers to the relative size and scale of the various elements in a design. Our most universal standard of measurement is the human body; that is, our experience of living in our own bodies.
Flat And Thin Are In Advertisement In the last several years, we’ve seen a rapid shift in software and app interface design, from 3-D and skeuomorphic to flat and minimal. Although this trend has become nearly ubiquitous, let’s take a moment to consider how we got here and what influence it’s having on interface design as a whole. Additionally, I’ll share some tips and considerations on designing flat interfaces. Interfaces on a Windows Phone 8 and Apple’s iOS 7. What Happened? So, how did the collective consciousness swing from a love of all things textured, beveled and drop-shadowed to a desire for flat colors and simple typography?
