It's our final day posting about the Adobe Creative Resident Class of 2017 and we're thrilled to feature the work of Seattle-based interaction designer, Natalie Lew. A designer with a passion for thinking of ways future technologies like augmented reality and artificial intelligence can be used in the classroom to teach intangible concepts, we were particularly captured by Natalie's work for the Seattle Aquarium Redesign. The project entailed attracting those who have visited the Seattle Aquarium before to see the site in a new light, and for those yet to go to the attraction to see aquariums themselves in a unique way. Natalie created a beautiful new visual identity for the aquarium, applied that identity to the branding of the design, and designed a new service application to aid those visiting the site. Check out Natalie's journey for the aquarium redesign below and learn more about this rising star and what inspires her here. Designing the App Experience This is an application intended for a user about to visit the exhibit or already within the exhibit. It does not intend for the aquarium to offer more than it already does; rather, it simply facilitates the activities and exhibits and the aquarium in current existence. Wireframes and Navigation Further Branding As the identity of the Seattle Aquarium relies on far more than just visual UI, Natalie created mockups of what Out of Home advertising might look like, as well as their website and catalogue for print viewing. MORE ABOUT ADOBE CREATIVE RESIDENT NATALIE LEW An interaction designer and recent graduate, Natalie Lew of Seattle is passionate about the intersections of design and philosophy. Her interdisciplinary background in design inspires her residency project, in which she’ll create a toolkit of resources to make user experience design more accessible and available to the creative community. She plans to start a design studio in the future, so she’ll challenge herself to learn more about working in individual and group settings while constantly receiving and improving based on feedback.
We're excited to share our next Adobe Creative Resident of 2017, the talented Rosa Kammermeier. We posted about the overarching Adobe Creative Residency Program yesterday in case you need to catch up on the phenomenal endeavor by Adobe to support the creative class in pursuing dream projects. How amazing would it be to focus ONE WHOLE YEAR on a passion project and have it creatively and financially supported by Adobe? Not to mention, each resident is paired with an amazing mentor. In Rosa's case, it's the uber accomplished Berlin-based lettering designer & author Martina Flor. Enter the heartwarming work of Rosa Kammermeier. Rosa is a graphic designer and lettering artist from Munich, Germany. Her "heart" project for the residency is the WALK OF HAPPINESS in which she’ll be hand lettering slogans of positivity and happiness on shop windows creating a city treasure hunt. Her messages will be linked and made accessible on a city map and on a website creating an artistic tour of sorts for all to enjoy and discover. Rosa hopes to capture the attention of people in their daily, consumer-oriented lives and make them stop, smile and think while discovering new aspects and areas of their city. She wants to challenge herself to improve her own skills while thinking and driving impact on a bigger scale.
