Dating Apps Suck! ING DiBa Now Reinvented DatING.

Dating and dating apps are the app spam these days.
ING DiBa reinvented they way you use dating apps. Embedded in people’s banking behavior, this app here finds you the perfect partner that matches your banking behaviour. What a great value proposition!

Especially when you downloaded apps that pretend to find you the partner for life. With most of them you end up in paying with credits for fake profiles.
We think this needs a revolution. And we’re glad that the German ING DiBa jumped on this train and reinvented dating with an own app.

Enjoy watching it!

We’re Beta Girls And Women In The Creative Business

We’re far away from being alpha women in business here at Wildstyle Network. It’s because there’s no alpha behavior nor a subordination in our entire international team. Although we all know it’s an alpha world in business. With men dominating and shaping the role of woman in classic advertising, transport, technology, politics and so many other branches.

The reason why we did a series called #WomanInCreativeBusiness is that we strongly believe that the creative industry can shape and change women’s image like no other industry. Our female members of the team also agree that we don’t simply do business but have fun in what we creating each day, what we’re achieving as a team every day.

So please find these real-agency-life images taken by Wildstyle Network’s designer Anne during idea-findings, in our Atelier and the general work at the desk. All done in a day, all natural.

Another fact I don’t understand is why so many people like tattoos if you consider that 47% of people (Americans) without tattoos think tattoos make people less attractive?!

Wildstyle’s Chalkboard Love And Anti-Digital UX Design Desk

After posting a chalkboard picture on my Facebook page, I was later asked by a 22y old UI design applicant why we’re working on a chalkboards and if the dust isn’t destroying keyboards or Wacom screens – instead of using UX and wireframing tools like UX PIN, Photoshop or Sketch?! Sure, he wanted to demo his skills but after chatting about pros and cons of working analog, it just came to me that the traditional way of sketching wireframes and UX is about to become outdated. Hey, I think it’s fatal to underestimate this way of sketching, especially the sexiness of dried chalk on your hands, the slowdown of the process and emptyness of a white paper.
Let’s summarize this discussion in a longer blogpost including seven of our favorite tools which we use during work in our Wildstyle Atelier.
