Beyond Tiles: Western Europe Design Tour

By Arturo Toledo | May 10th, 2013 | No Comments

I think the time is right and the mood is proper for me to announce the upcoming Beyond Tiles, Western Europe Design Tour. It is a one-day design extravaganza where Microsoft, NOKIA, Toledo Design (Arturo and Alejandro) and some special guests (i.e Brady Voss from the Windows Phone design studio in Redmond, Vincent Garcia, from Avanade in Stockholm and NOKIA guests) will be sharing with you insightful and practical design knowledge to create Windows Phone and Windows apps that can go “beyond tiles”.

As recently discussed, it can only be the Community who pushes Windows and Windows Phone design to the next level. Luckily for us we have a couple good shepherds to guide us in this journey: Microsoft and Nokia. There’s so much more design potential for applications created under the original modernist principles of the 20th century, from masters like Gropius, Vignelli, Rams, Van der Rohe and Kubrick. Some call it Metro, others “flat, others “modern”, we just like to call it “Good Design”.

Windows Phone is more than just Panoramas and Pivots and Windows is more than just tiles. If you want to get a first (very first) hint at how to go beyond these out-of-box design paradigms with your own design innovation, then join us at this event.
