for all you hardware interaction designers, this bit was just an
amazing piece on Core77 about Kinetic Design. I think some of us
might think this is just "interaction design", but to me the
discussion of aesthetics of motion really touches my heart string in
a wondrous way. There was this Pratt ID student I met a couple of
years ago who did his thesis on this, and it also really resonated
with me back then.
We're so excited about this one! Please forward to anyone you think
might be interested!
IxDA SF presents:
INTERSECTION: Where Interaction and Industrial Design Meet
featuring case studies from Cooper, frog design, Motorola and IDEO
Taking advantage of industrial design presence in San Francisco for
the ICSID/IDSA Connecting 07 conference, IxDA San Francisco is
delighted to host an evening of dialog between two closely related
but often siloed fields: Industrial Design and Interaction Design.
Thanks to everyone who came out to last week's social at Eight Mile
Creek! This month, Ted Booth, Senior Design Manager at Motorola
Enterprise Mobility, will talk about his experiences as an Interaction
Designer working with Industrial Designers.
I'd been waiting until I had a fuller library of stuff, but since
Core 77 outed it yesterday, I should announce it here.
Inspired by Andy Clarke's talk at Web Directions about drawing
inspiration from the physical world, I've started a collection of
control panels, buttons, dials, handles, animations, icons, etc. It's
meant to be a source of new/old ideas for interaction designers.
