Inside the Offices of VSCO Oakland

Architecture: Inside the Offices of VSCO Oakland

VSCO is an editing app that I use almost every day to enhance workflow with my photography through taking photos, editing, filtering and sharing them. That being said, I am always wondering about the architecture inside the offices will look like, a behind the scenes look to see their work environment of such a genuine app that changed the way we take pictures. Designed by DeBartolo Architects, they are an architectural studio based in Phoenix, Arizona. With a philosophy of building great work by connecting and challenging the natural and urban landscape. Oakland is my hometown. It embodies how we see ourselves as a company scrappy and hard working with a diverse and international community. Practically, it’s central for Bay Area. We could have chosen anywhere but Oakland was our ideal location for the office and feel of how we see ourselves. Everything about the build out and the space is an outward extension of who we are, personally and as a company. - Joel Flory CEO & Co-Founder of VSCO   Credits Design: DeBartolo Architects Photography: Mariko Reed Images via Office Snapshots

Revisiting VSCO

Revisiting VSCO

Let's talk about VSCO and their recent overhaul app update that generated a lot of feedback from the community especially designers. Whenever you liked it or not, one thing for sure is no one ever (ever) like change. It's part of who we are as human beings and I don't think it's going to change anytime soon. From my personal opinion, the app has (and still) important user flow problems that disadvantage your experience with it. After Instagram, VSCO is my second "go-to" app on my phone, it's a really great photo editing app that totally change the game for me. Having thoughts, I should investigate the philosophy/concept VSCO had about this update, it would be great to share with you guys. As many would think about doing a redesign? Of course as we take a closer look of Ilja Miskov and his improvements to the app. Taking on the simplicity and minimalism of VSCO brand, Ilja took an even more simple approach to the UI and took an extra care to the icons. Which reminded how frustrating it was to navigate through the current VSCO app and really not understanding what were the icons for until you clicked on them. It still the case. But their recent redesign of the app is just terrible. Even after the update to 4.0 they have already confused millions of users with weird iconography. Many including myself wouldn't understand what those icons meant to be and what actions they do. But now with the version 5.0 the whole user experience of the app has gone wild. I don't understand how to interact with the app, I don't understand how those weird gestures they introduced should help me navigate through the app. They've made everything even more confusing, settings less accessible and even the iconography less understandable again.

Sneak Peek at the #NewVSCO

VSCO is personally one of my favourite Photo Editing App out there, I almost use it every single day. I really love it because it's a great tool to create/make. Ever since they've updated the capacity to save larger images, that was a game-changer for me and I am pretty sure for most of us. Nowadays, we tend to use filters almost everywhere on Social Media, I love VSCO because you can take a subtle approach while creating a greater picture. We are sharing a sneak peek of the NewVSCO. We’re excited to share that we’ll be rolling out a redesigned mobile app for iOS and Android, which focuses equally on both creating and discovering on the VSCO platform.
