With those deep words in mind, i would say designers deserve respect! Cheers to all of you all around the world! And a shoutout to a really great designer Jaakko Rappola! You inspire us!
Anyways, so todays topic is about the concepts about the future of sailfish which were quite popular on the community not so long ago.
So it was Ali Fakhruddin (BlazingBird? Seriously #insideJoke) who started with concepts about the future of sailfish
The fact that jolla was inspiring enough to make someone take some time out of their life and share a piece of their mind itself enough to see how successful jolla is.
And the fact that Jolla made someone as lazy as me write articles prove that its super awesome. 😀
Now i dont even know if Im biased to Jaako’s work or i just really dont care about the design but I cant really understand this concept..properly.
I thought maybe talking to the designer itself would enlighten me and well even though it didnt….i was able to gather this much!
Now im sure everyone of you know’s Ali. Either you have used his ambiance wallpapers, seen one of his edited pictures (I dont know why but i find this picture so damn hilarious :D), or have seen his post in the Jolla Community.
Talking to him i got to know, like most of us he also inherited the love for jolla from the simplicity of MeeGo and then he said some really deep designer related thing which i dont think i will ever understand!
And like most of us, he also believes in openness and loves the accepting, loving nature of the Jolla Community. (Well yeah all of us are really loving except, for one. You are a hellion, yes I’m talking about you. ;))
So without further ado, here’s his concept:
So in this picture he is talking about some gestures, and from what i can gather they are all in landscape this shows the love for n900 and demand for landscape mode in sailfish.
Also i believe adding two features to one swipe direction will give birth to alot of confusion. :/
And in this one…one thing is clear the next phone jolla will release..people want it to bigger and feature a qwerty.
and plus who says no to increased specs, better camera!
This is what he wanted the final device to look like. I think yes the camera shouldn’t be in the center but otherwise I believe jolla’s hardware design is pretty awesome!
What are your thoughts guys?
Makers are gonna make,
Coders are gonna code
Designers are gonna design,
While im gonna sleep!
