Hi, I’m Brian Dys — a photographer from the inside looking out · a composer entangled in electronic music · a UX designer · a spouse, a parent, & everything in between.
I’ve had this poster for the longest time on my bedroom door in my parents’ house. Planning to repaint the room, I took it down along with other magazine pages that acted as wallpapers.
All of my internal and external hard drives are being consumed by media files like fungus to a rotting tree trunk. I confess that I’ve been hoarding files from my camera that never see the light of day (or get shared to people involved).
…is the 5D Data Storage! It could store 360 terabytes of your photos and videos in full resolution!
Now, there’s no need to hesitate in shooting RAW and 4K!
We are hoarders. Hoarders of digital files. That turn into junk after a year without seeing the light of day. We dismiss in our daily lives the digital ephemera that sit in inside our digital boxes, thinking they are just there.
As UI designers, it’s easy to jump into sketching UIs through wire frames. Afterall, UIs are commonly visual. But taking a careful step of planning before sketching is a rewarding way of ensuring that the information embedded into the UI is well-thought of.
