By now, I’m sure we all must have noticed the new design that Google recently rolled out. I somehow feel that the left hand sidebar filters can be designed better. Even the transition from more search tools to fewer search tools does not seem to be very smooth. Google has been experimenting with this sidebar for many months now. I wish if there was an option to “turn off” this new sidebar. Though I really like the way more filters are given in search categories such as Images, Books etc. Especially the color and type search in images is absolutely fundu.
Hello everyone I am a recent Master degree graduate in interior design with a project oriented toward interaction design experience.
I wish to pursue my PhD degree preferably in UK or in any other countries but would need your suggestions for universities offering PhD in interaction design with a possibility of orienting the subject towards interior Design ????
Umeå Institute of Design (http://www.dh.umu.se) announces four new PhD positions. The PhD positions are within the fields of industrial design and mobile interaction design. The application deadline is May 12th 2010.
Please visit the specific pages for further details about each position:
I know there has been prior discussion to some aspects of what I am going to ask, but the background is a little different this time.
-After a Masters in Computer Science, why should one pursue Masters degree in Interaction Design or Information Design? At a more abstract level, why are design studies essential for
Software or Computer Science guys?
- Isn't it possible for a Software guy or a Computer Science guy to get the required knowledge in the areas of Information design and/or Interaction design with experience?
I´m going to write an article about the influence of interfaces and interactions from hollywood movies for interaction designers. I found a really nice paper about it: www.butz.org/publications/papers/hci-scifi.pdf
There are some new tools from Adobe coming together with the launch of CS5, which it takes place April 12. Flash Catalyst is one of them, which it seems to be a tool totally based on our community (interaction designers)
I was researching on new technology and media for RIA and found Live Mesh. I found that it seamlessly connects your data through Windows PC, Mac, Mobile Phone, and other devices. It is an interesting concept and would we not want all our work to be seamlessly, updated wherever we are on the go?
