I jumped on the 100 Days of Design idea, Dan Saffer’s bandwagon, along with Livia Labate as well as Bill deRouchey, Samantha Soma, Brad Lauster and Austin Govella. I decided to practice storyboarding a generally negative or problematic daily interaction. Results pictured.I feel that even in a few days, I started to get more objective yet abbreviated. Abstract and detail is the focus. Where is the human element, visually? The voice is there, but disembodied. I will say that on the blank days, I grabbed iPhone pics and screenshots and then transposing them to sketch form just was going to take too much time. Unfortunately for a variety of reasons, my life is ultra-complex and fluid right now and time is what I don’t have. And on this professional side of my life, the past decade+ has consumed immense attention. It’s a time to rebalance, and cars and poetry are way more on my mind than interaction design…so, a cool concept for another day. May the rest endure!
A rainbow greeted my return to Oregon, naturally.
This one leaves up a frame stencil that makes it appear as if the current frame is the tenth & final frame. Have these places never heard about the plasticity of computer rendering capabilities? Harumph.
The fields of user experience design are suffering through a transition of terminology, at an inflection point of becoming a discipline comprising a set of related fields that many other major professions have gone through before. For example, marketing went through such a change in the early 1900’s, according to Steve Sato, well-researched individual I talked with recently at CHIFOO. It occurs to me that engineering likewise is a large profession that’s faced up to the range of titles that necessarily exist, from mechanical engineer to civil engineer to electrical engineer to software engineer…to software architect, developer, etc.
Sweet pictures of me & Cherie (& instructor Don Wentz) from the August 9th HPDE at PIR with the BMW club, which I somehow lost track of until just now…this photographer captured an amazing sense of motion.
