Last week was the launch of the YotaPhone 2 in Moscow and London, an innovative dual screen phone created by Russian manufacturer, YotaPhone. Here at AllofUs we were pleased to have worked closely with the YotaPhone team to reimagine high level concepts for the e-ink screen UI/UX.
The e-ink screen works both independently as an ‘always on’ greyscale touch screen and simultaneously to accompany the LCD screen, sharing apps and generally prolonging the battery life of the phone as a whole.
To find out more information on the phone see the YotaPhone website.

Photographer Brock Elbank is halfway through taking a series of 60 portraits of bearded fellows around the world after close friend Scott Maggs, better known by his alias Jimmy Niggles, started growing his 'epic' beard after one of his best mates Wes Bonny died when a melanoma in his neck spread to his brain at the age of just 26.
We're currently building social awareness and the full campaign - focusing on getting everyone to get a melanoma check - will launch later in the year. However press has been picking it up already and today sanky - one of our founders - has surfaced on the pages of buzzfeed with one of his portraits - #34 of 60 - stay tuned for more news and check out...
We are pleased to announce the total re-design of the Tony Blair Faith Foundation website, developed to promote the organisation’s work around the world providing practical support to help prevent religious prejudice, conflict and extremism.
A key priority has been to refine the organisation’s messaging and vision in line with their new brand positioning. The Foundation deals with complex and sometimes difficult subject matters. Therefore a great deal of time was spent with the content teams at the Foundation to get a deep understanding of the topics at hand and create specific design features and formats around the needs of the end user, ranging from the sensitivity of the image editing to the creation of the 'snippet' tool.
We also had to accommodate a wide ranging global target audience for the site, ranging from supporters, students, governments, NGOs and professionals who are interested in gaining an in-depth knowledge of the Foundation’s work .
And of course the site needed to work across multiple platforms to appeal to everyone, allowing easy access to the unique information.
Site can be viewed here.

We have now completed work on a series of interactive exhibits for the ‘Ancient lives: new discoveries’ exhibition at the British Museum which opens to the public this week, May 22nd. Using breakthrough technology, the exhibition shows a never-before-seen picture of eight individuals’ lives in the Nile Valley over 4,000 years - from prehistoric Egypt to Christian Sudan.
The exhibition, which runs until November 30th, is made possible by three-dimensional CT reconstructions of the mummies. These are made up from hundreds, sometimes thousands, of CT scans combined to create an impressively detailed reconstruction of the bodies and objects concealed within the wrappings.
