Design, Interaction Design, News, Opinion, UX, Visualisation

Here’s what us folks at RMA have been reading and chatting about in the office this week…

1) Fontreach


What’s this all about?
Perfect for those obsessed with fonts – a site that scans millions of popular sites to show the most used fonts.

What does RMA say?
“Reads like a font-face cascade list,” Stuart Eggleston, Senior Interaction Designer.

2)  UX LEGO Design process

Lego for UX brainstorming

What’s this all about?
Basically it’s about UX brainstorming with Toy Bricks – who knew brainstorming could be so much more interesting?!

What does RMA say?
“FUN! Now we just need a truck load of Lego…” Myriam Wiesenfeld, UX designer.

3) Sketch-Constraints via GitHub

What’s this all about?
A plugin that integrates constraints in Sketch to lay out layers.

What does RMA say?
“Nice sketch plugin.” Stuart Eggleston, Senior Interaction Designer.

4) It’s A Robot! It’s A Smartphone! No, It’s RoBoHoN


What’s this all about?
Sharp has made a phone unlike anything else on the market. This video introduces you to RoBoHoN, – the world’s first robot smartphone that can talk, walk, remind users to buy groceries and even dance.

What does RMA say?
“Great, now when I deliberately leave my phone in another room for a bit of peace, the damn thing can come and find me.” Stephen Loader, UX Consultant.
