No Business Last Forever

Posted 19/04/2014 by Ysteven

I recently read this article saying that no business last forever. The article talks about “The Innovator’s Dillema”, in which Clayton Christensen talks about how a big company get too dependent on their cash-cow products and services, making them less innovative.

In the article, Facebook is said to be pivot-ing to another business concept and becoming a Bank instead. The explanation is very make sense that it is kinda creepy to hear.

The article inspired me to think, how we often become scared to start a business because we don’t think it is big enough. The fact is, if a successful business such as facebook needs innovation in business model, what about the not-so-successful?

The idea was to start. Start doing business, and we will meet customers, ideas will popped up, and we can always innovate our business model.

Always be open minded, it is crucial.

Posted 15/04/2014 by Ysteven

Heiho, peeps. is back, and it has a new look with Flat User Interface!

I’ve been meaning to try designing a flat UI for a while, but I don’t have any time due to my job and all. Now that I’m resting at home to recover from my health condition, I have time to redesign Ysteven and experimenting with Flat UI at the same time.

Some things I learned during this experiment :

- If you are designing flat UI, avoid shadow. I find that #CCC ( light grey ) is already too bold.
Typography is crucial in flat UI. Choose the wrong font, and the whole design is flawed.
- We spend more time configuring Typo than Layout.

What do you think of the new design? Is it too flat for you? Please let me know!
