C4 Studio & C4

Role
Project Manager | UX Researcher
 
Development time: 6 Months  (Sep 2015 - Apr 2016)
 
Challenge

The design and development processes for mobile apps seem to be quite disjointed. Interaction artists and developers spend high amounts of resources developing new apps and prototyping tools do not provide designers the capacity to experiment with interface interaction and human gestures. Artists face the bottleneck of relying on developers to mock-up any test interactions. 

Solution

Our dev team devised C4 Studio! A cutting-edge creativity tool that helps designers focus on the interactions that emerge during app design. It lets them see the effect of animations and interaction in real-time on a native device. It bridges the gap between design and developer by generating native code that can be directly incorporated into larger more complex projects.  

Note: C4 Studio has recently become Flow, which works in tandem with Sketch, another renown design tool.
