Deprivation Testing and Mapping Your Life

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of June 3rd brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.

Ideas
Museum of Non Participation: Artists Karen Mirza and Brad Butler practice activism and examine the modern condition through their fictional Museum of Non Participation. They are currently showing at Walker Art Center and the design for the show is also quite inspiring.

Why The Old Definition Of Brand Value Has Died: Brands must incorporate participative benefits into their models, which is not a completely new idea, but very well explained by Jeff Fromm.

How GitHub Uses “Deprivation Testing” To Hone Product Design: Give users a new toy or feature in your product, then take it away and watch how to react to determine whether it’s worth including or not!

5 Pillars of Successful Mobile Design: A great list to help you “unshackle yourself from 20+ years of desktop computing and the web.”

Products
Etch: Visualize your Foursquare check-ins on Manhattan, Portland, and San Francisco city maps.

Adobe Edge Reflow: Edge Reflow is a web design tool that will help you create responsive layouts using standards based on CSS. A very interesting new product from Adobe, although it still needs a lot of work.

Visuals
Swipe: Beautiful site for a design studio located in Germany. Its playful and seemingly random project layout is maintained through the site’s responsiveness, providing an equal feel across all devices.
