elapse / Mobile app


Our design “elapse ” introduces the concept of time. As the time usage increases, the interface of the social media gradually begins to fade, blur or smash, which makes people realize the loss of time. Based on the attributes of humans’ visual cognition, these effects can also reduce the visual stimulation that the social media posed on users and therefore reduce people’s interest in the social media. At the same time, the difference in visual effects between the social media’s interface and that of the actual world will help people distinguish the boundaries between online and offline world.
