Designer’s Survival Kit
A self-initiated project on June 2010
The Designer’s Survival Kit is the definitive tool that aims to help you quit blockages while designing.
I wanted to develop an AIR application and I was searching for inspirations, then I followed the advices on “Artist’s Survival Kit #1” by Keri Smith: you print out some cards with generic indication and you get a random one. I followed the instructions and I drawn the “Steal” card. Designer’s Survival Kit is a digital reinterpretation of the same project. Just push the button and get a creative advice, useful for graphic designers and art directors.
The app was designed in Adobe Flash and developed using Actionscript 3, the graphic design was inspired by the Dieter Rams’ work.
The application can be downloaded here: www.andreapinchi.it/dsk/.
