  • Posted to Designing Retina Web Graphics in Photoshop: Should You Work at 1x or 2x?, Feb 10, 2017

    Design in 1x, but make sure all your assets can be exported in vector or retina images.

    In case of images (in Photoshop): - use images that are large enough for @2x / @3x - past them in full resolution in design and turn them into smart objects

    When design is finished, export all your assets in @1x, @2x and @3x.

  • Posted to How to design for Virtual Reality?, Dec 09, 2016

    We recently launched a in browser 360 / VR experience and it was a lot of fun exploring this new way of UI/UX design and technology. We will write a blog about how we achieved this later.

    Most fun we had with creating interactive hotspots. It works by selecting it by focussing with a centered dot on the hotspots. Hold it and a progress bar will show you how long you have to hold it to open. It works really intuitive and is fun to use. Tested it with different users and everyone instantly understood how to interact.

    Check the site here:

  • Posted to 360 / VR experience for Dutch Army, Dec 07, 2016

    Hi DN,

    I’m proud to show you a new project we’ve been working on last months. For the Dutch Ministry of Defence we’ve been asked to create an interactive experience for a new tech campaign.

    The result is a 3D / 360 world based on 2D images. On your smartphone you’ll be able to switch to VR and use it with VR-headset or Google Cardboard.

    Check it out: (sorry for Dutch language ;))

    Depends on the project. Sometimes both at the same time.

    If we'd like to sell a design or concept it sells better to the client on desktop (yup, guess they still think bigger is better / more impressive..) But we always also show a mobile version to share our thoughts on the mobile experience.

  • Posted to Ask DN: What do you use Sketch for (besides app screens)?, Apr 19, 2016

    I use it for mobile app design or web app designs, because in this case consistancy & systematic design is important.

    For visually rich websites & advertising concepts I still use Photoshop because editting images / visuals is better to do directly in PS.
