  2. 2014 — The Year of Interaction Design Tools →

    radiofun:

    인터랙션 디자인 툴이 정말 쏟아져 나오고 있다고 하는데.. 모아보니 꽤 많네.

    Macaw나 Flinto같은 쉽게 만들수 있지만 제한적인 툴부터, Origami나 Framer.js같이 조금은 복잡하지만 가능성은 거의 무한한 툴까지 입맛에 맞는 놈으로 골라 쓰면 될 것 같다.

    이 외에도 Pixate (아직 런칭되진 않음)같은 멋진 툴과, 이번 Google I/O에서 본격적으로 다뤄질 Polymer도 줄서있다. 트위터 디자인의 말 대로, 정말 인터랙션 디자이너하기 딱 좋은 시기가 아닌가 싶다.

    Some prototyping tools for interaction design

  3. Design is most powerful when it tells a story about something that matters, in a voice that matters.

  4. Stanford University: Innovation und Design Thinking       →

    It’s great to work in a team of t-shaped professionals: the Design and Co-Innovation Center at Sap. Have a look what the researchers from Stanford have to say about it (in German)

    "Das DCC-Team ist dynamisch und sozial und besteht durchweg aus „T-Shaped Professionals“, also einer Mischung aus Spezialist und Generalist mit sozialer Kompetenz."

  5. If you want creative workers, give them enough time to play.

  6. Explore the Future of Design Management with the DCC at DMI London - SAP User Experience Community →

    Meet us the 19th DMI: Academic Design Management Conference in London next week. The topic this year is “Design Management in an Era of Disruption”, therefore we will try out our new Scenario Thinking-Leporello with the participants. Stay tuned for more after the conference.

  8. For a project I was looking for an explanation about the heroes journey. Browsing through the internet I found this really beautiful visualization.

  9. This is a little project we did at the SAP Design and Co-Innovation Center during the time of Movember 2013. The Design Thinking leporello helps facilitators to explain what Design Thinking is. You can read more about it and download our design thinking leporello from our BLOG.

  10. Absolutely great blog about design thinking process visualizations.
For whoever saw the movie “Miles Electric”. I think Miles Davis has said something about his own music that applies as well to what is called design thinking: "Call it anything"!

  13. A product is not a set of screens — it’s the stories those screens enable.

    — 

    this is good.

    via thoughtyoushouldseethis:

    Story-centered Design: Hacking Your Brain To Think Like A User is a great story by Google Ventures partner, Braden Kowitz. In it, he outlines his process for managing the complexity inherent in interaction design projects, and describes how he has moed away from a screen-based approach to one that focuses on narrative and storytelling. Easier said than done, of course, and the four ways he outlines aren’t the only ways to think about this issue, but it’s an important topic that more would do well to think about seriously. After all, the impact of a more holistic approach to design can be profound.

    Disrupteneurs are foremost innovative storytellers.

    One of the reasons why it makes sense to employ people with a background in literature and narrative theory for your design team!
