Critique: Shindig iPad App
We’ve been working on iPad app pages for our magazine. The one I’m designing is a cooking guide that has a list of the evening’s menu. It includes the cooking time of each item, when it should be taken out of the oven, for example, and a timer that shows what temperature it should be cooked. There is also a shopping list that provides what food will be needed for the party. Here is what it looks like so far.
Response: Mini Portfolio
I’ve been finalizing my portfolio, and all I have left to put in it is Shindig designs. I’m planning to send it to the printer this weekend to get a proof before we present them to the class. Here is what I have for my front and back cover, a preview of what my labels and page setup will look like, and my resume, which is on the last pages.

On designverb this week, there is a post about emoticon rings. Chao and Eero Jewel from Finland designed these with inspiration that email and phone messages are used so frequently. Using emoticons to express emotion is probably a daily activity for most people, so I bet many think this is a clever idea. I think they're pretty funny.
I love looking at packaging design, and I found some pretty neat ones on a site called Lovely Package. Much of the designs featured are of beverage labels, but there is a wide variety of categories, such as athletics and home. Here are some of my favorites.
