From design research to hacked simulations of products and services, SMS is a simple tool that goes a long way. David Boardman is a Senior Design Lead at IDEO New York.

Whether it’s type design, interface, or illustration, Liam spends a lot of his free time continuing to explore design. Outside of that, you can find him behind a camera or writing blog posts. Mutative design (http://www.touchlab.co/blog/2015/12/reshare-who-is-phoebe) is a theoretical design methodology that would allow interfaces and experiences to be born, live, and evolve according to a user’s realities. With mutative design, things like physical ability, lighting, and vision are accounted for automatically, allowing interfaces to be engaging and accessible to every user, without compromise.

Paper (https://www.fiftythree.com), a productivity app with 15M downloads, comes to iPhone and brings with it a faster, better way to capture ideas using text, sketches, and photos.​ Ideas. They strike at any moment and come in many forms. Screenshots or photos of things we want to remember, checklists, loose sketches, stream­of­consciousness words, diagrams, emails to ourselves—whatever your idea and whenever it hits, Paper's cutting­edge tools will capture and communicate it with speed and polish. Paper is a beautiful way to organize your thoughts, with ideas captured and stored like a wall of sticky notes that are easily arranged and connected to each other. Whether you’re remodeling your home, taking lecture notes, writing a travel list, or creating a presentation, Paper is the springboard for your ideas.
