Recently Gesture Theory launched the new Undercurrent website. This was a great project to work on both professionally and personally. I hold a lot of the people that currently work there and those that had been there at some point in time. Typically when we launch a product or site I’ll go through the process on the blog. This time instead I’m going to point to an interview I did with Matthew Carlin of Undercurrent where we discuss some of the finer points of the site titled Production Notes: Undercurrent.com. Below are some of the screen shots of the site in various devices.
Michael is currently the Head of Design at Dataminr, the first real-time information discovery company for Finance, News and the Public Sector. He leads the UXD team and is responsible for the overall design and experience of the desktop app, mobile products (iPhone & iPad), email systems, internal products and external communications.
Recently he merged his passion for time pieces, technlogy and wearables by becoming an advisor to Nooka.
Since 2005 Michael has published his thoughts on design at Design Notes. Topics of interest range from people's daily experiences with technology to typography to photography among many others.
When not designing, writing, or shooting photos, he loves cycling in and around the city. He can be reached at michael at michaelsurtees dot com.
