George Kokkinidis at Design Language News photographed the fingerprints of his iPad use.
My method involved cleaning the iPad’s surface with a microfiber cloth, using an app for a short amount of time, then turning the screen off. Next, I photographed the iPad, positioning a light source and some black matte board to limit distracting reflections. I then brought the photographs into Adobe Illustrator, and created vectors of the iPad and the fingerprints to emphasize the data.
I love that through fingerprints alone, you get a true sense of how somebody would use these apps, and how characteristically different they are. [via clusterflock]
