Noel is taking the reigns once again this week. This time, he’s explaining some nice features about the detail and thought behind the Maglus. We think it gives a great insight into a product when you get to hear about it’s process directly from the designer. So read on, let us know your thoughts… and enjoy! – Paula
Hi all, Noel here again, I’m going to keep this post short.
I felt it was worth briefly covering this topic as it’s something people have mentioned. Writing about it seems the obvious way to explain it! As a designer, its nice to be able to point out the little details that I make sure are included in the design of a product. Features can be overlooked and often the customer doesn’t realise the tiny things that are considered in every step of a product’s development!
So that being said, heres a blog post about the keyring…. and its reason for existence!
Just checking in to say a little about using the replaceable tips. We have developed the different tips to give you different experiences while using your Maglus. The one thing that is common with all the tips with the exception of the graphite tip is they all use the same method of connecting to the main Maglus body.
2 blog posts in 2 weeks! Hopefully there is some info in them that you enjoy. I thought I’d check in and talk a little about another use for Maglus beyond your tablet or phone.
As a Product Designer I use a lot of various software and techniques to develop ideas. At the very early stages of a new product development, ideas are developed to a concept. Concepts allow me to communicate an idea through a visual medium. Often times this will be in the form of some sketching and then when I bring them a little further the initial sketching may be brought into a software package to help develop and polish the concept.
We know that everyone enjoys hearing about the people behind the products. So with this in mind, this week’s post comes from Noel Joyce, one of the designers of the Maglus Stylus. Noel is a really great guy and has been involved with lots of interesting projects. He’s always very busy and I’m not quite sure how he fits everything in! Luckily for us, he had some time to write a few words following his recent trip to China…
Hey everyone, Noel here – one of Maglus designers. It’s been a while so I’m checking in.
I am just back from China where when I am not doing design work on Applydea products I do work on projects at Haxlr8r, the worlds premier and best Hardware acceleration program.
What springs to mind when you think of St.Patrick’s Day – Shamrocks? Leprechauns? A green Liffey?
We wanted to show you that there is more to Ireland than that…
Can a walk on the beach change everything?
In James Joyce’s “Ulysses”, Sandymount strand in Dublin is the scene for what many think to be the birth of post-modernist writing. When the character Stephen Dedalus finds himself in need of some “beach-time”, Joyce switches into a stream of consciousness narrative.
“Under its leaf he watched through peacocktwittering lashes the southing sun. I am caught in this burning scene. Pan’s hour, the faunal noon. Among gumheavy serpentplants, milkoozing fruits, where on the tawny waters leaves lie wide. Pain is far.”
