Design Challenge: Digital Watch Faces

Hosted at ustwo

part of a series on Robot


About this FieldTrip

Wearables are quickly becoming a part of our everyday lives with the advent of Android Wear and Apple Watches. Designing for such tiny devices has become a coveted design skill. How do we decide which information we show? How do we stay digitally authentic? How do we make something look good enough to wear? These were some of the questions the ustwo team tackled whilst designing the collection of Android Wear watch faces you can see today.

Join us in our studio for an exclusive in-depth look at how this project came to be, the unique challenges we faced, and how we overcame them. Then, imparted with our team’s design principles, take the challenge yourself by sketching your very own digital watch face. We’ll choose our favorite of the bunch and mock it up!

Here’s what your morning will look like:

• 8:30 - 9:00 AM - Studio tour of ustwo New York

• 9:00 - 10:00 AM - Digital watch faces presentation & workshop

Stumptown coffee & bagels will be provided to kickstart your day. See you Friday!
