Developers, looking for a way to spruce up your app? Need advice on your creation’s UI? Then you may want to take a look at Toledo Designs who just partnered up with Nokia through their popular DVLUP program.
Why go with Toledo? It’s simple. One of the founders of the company is Arturo Toledo, a former Senior User Experience Designer for Microsoft's Windows Phone Design Studio. The man certainly knows his design theory as he wrote a whole guide on UI design for Windows Phone in a series which we covered back in 2011-2012. He recently wrote an interesting piece on the new look for the Facebook app in response to those who said it wasn't Modern.
He and his partner Alejandro Toledo (UX/Software Architect) have formed their own company, Toledo Design and now you can take advantage of their skillset through Nokia and their DVLUP program.
From their website where they announced the news:
“The basic idea is to help you take your app user interface to the next level and make it awesome! Nokia Design Consultations are dedicated 60 minute in-depth and actionable design and UX reviews directly with you and your team. The session gets recorded so you get to keep the feedback to incorporate into your app.
After the 60 minute review, and if you chose to do so, one of our senior designers will take a few hours or a full day to redesign selected screens for your app. We will provide you with high fidelity comps and the source Microsoft Expression Design files. This is the closest to hiring a dedicated design agency to handcraft the UI for your app!
If you do not have designers in your team or if you wish to provide industry expert feedback to your design team, Nokia Design Consultations are for you!”
A before and after app redesign
Sounds good to us. If there is one thing Windows Phone users have grown accustomed to, it’s gorgeous looking apps. And while minimalism has its role, it’s not always about making your app look native to the UI as there are avenues of creativity that many developers never pursue.
You can even see some of their ‘before and after’ comparisons above to see just what they are capable of in terms of a redesign. So developers, if you care about your app and its success, give considerable thought to Nokia's Design Consultations.
