Industrial Design for Clippad Universal Gamepad

We have to say that Nintendo is always trying to innovate or at least be different. They saw the shift of how people play games, more and more on mobile devices, and created the Nintendo Switch.

Digital Art and Distorted Perspectives by Aeforia

It's amazing how some styles and trends come and go. I remember in the 80s and early 90s when digital arts and CGI were at their infancy and one of the common themes were these surrealistic environments with 3D representations of people, most of the time with metallic or chrome look. It was all about that and then it evolved to something less futuristic, more graphical and dirtier.

I am an introvert, shy and that also made me feel insecure, so much so that I thought I had a problem. It turned out that was just my brain playing tricks on me. During all these years I have been reading a lot about psychology and how the brain works. It's good for my career as a designer and it's even better for all the questions I have in my head.
