The Polder to the Valley: designing interfaces with Adobe




Adobe is one of the best-known software makers within the printing industry, but also elsewhere, many people will have heard of, for example Photoshop. However, the company makes more than software for graphics professionals: nowadays they also have mobile apps and they also make custom software for other companies.

For those new software is much research into the operation and design of applications. Adobe Dutchman Remon Tijssen deals with all those things working in his role as principal designer. He examines the interaction the user has with the software – for example, where certain buttons should be. He also looks at how the design of the software and the style of the interface affects the operation.

Tijssen designed include the graphic style for Adobe’s iOS and Android applications, such as Adobe Photoshop Touch and Ideas. He is currently working on a large project for the tech magazine Wired: he develops a system based on large touchscreens that the editors simply an edition can view, sort and customize.
