This book provides an accurate overview of the recent research or industrial application in interactive design. The different arguments, taken from the international conference Virtual Concept 2005, will provide the reader with some advanced solutions concerning new methods and tools by discussing modelling techniques, design solution space exploration and interactive process organization.
Covering key topics in the field such as technological innovation, human-centered sustainable engineering and manufacturing, and manufacture at a global scale in a virtual world, this book addresses both advanced techniques and industrial applications of key research in interactive design and manufacturing. Featuring the full papers presented at the 2014 Joint Conference on Mechanical Design Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing, which took place in June 2014 in Toulouse, France, it presents recent research and industrial success stories related to implementing interactive design and manufacturing solutions.
This volume provides an overview of a wide range of original research and engineering activities related to high-realistic multi-sensorial virtual prototyping dedicated to the improvement of industrial innovation. It details the most recent interactive design techniques, enabling readers to gain a new understanding of important concepts.
The Principles and Processes of Interactive Design
The Principles & Processes of Interactive Design is aimed at new designers from across the design and media disciplines who want to learn the fundamentals of designing for interactive media. This book is intended both as a primer and companion guide on how to research, plan and design for increasingly prevalent interactive projects. With clear and practical guidance on how to successfully present your ideas and concepts, Jamie Steane introduces you to user-based design, research and development, digital image and typography, interactive formats, and screen-based grids and layout. Using a raft of inspirational examples from a diverse range of leading international creatives and award-winning agencies, this is required reading for budding digital designers. In addition, industry perspectives from key design professionals provide fascinating insights into this exciting creative field, and each chapter concludes with workshop tutorials to help you put what you've learnt into practice in your own interactive designs. Featured contributors include: AKQA, BBC, Dare, Edenspiekermann, Electronic Arts, e-Types, Komodo Digital, Moving Brands, Nordkapp, Onedotzero, Onformative, Preloaded and Razorfish.
AVA's Basics Interactive Design titles are designed to provide visual arts student with a theoretical and practical exploration of each of the fundamental topics within the discipline of Interactive Design. Packed with examples from students and professionals and fully illutrated with clear diagrams and inspiring imagery, they offer an essential exploration of the subject. Basics Interactive Design: Interface Design is the first book in the new Basics series. From a visual communication direction, it focuses on the design of effective, user-focused front-end designs for a range of digital media interfaces. Using case studies and interviews to delve deeper, the design of effective visual communication for user interfaces is clearly explained, giving the reader the knowledge needed to design better websites, apps for smartphones and tablts and DVD interfaces.
Information Design provides citizens, business and government with a means of presenting and interacting with complex information. It embraces applications from wayfinding and map reading to forms design; from website and screen layout to instruction. Done well it can communicate across languages and cultures, convey complicated instructions, even change behaviours. Information Design offers an authoritative guide to this important multidisciplinary subject. The book weaves design theory and methods with case studies of professional practice from leading information designers across the world. The heavily illustrated text is rigorous yet readable and offers a single, must-have, reference to anyone interested in information design or any of its related disciplines such as interaction design and information architecture, information graphics, document design, universal design, service design, map-making and wayfinding.
User experience design is one of the fastest-growing specialties in graphic design. Smart companies realize that the most successful products are designed to meet the needs and goals of real people—the users. This means putting the user at the center of the design process. This innovative, comprehensive book examines the user-centered design process from the perspective of a designer. With rich imagery, Interactive Design introduces the different UX players, outlines the user-centered design process from user research to user testing, and explains through various examples how user-centered design has been successfully integrated into the design process of a variety of design studios worldwide.
This text shows interface designers how to understand each other's design principles and solutions. The text applies patterns in the domain of user interface design, and publishes a comprehensive pattern language for interface design.
Human Computer Interaction Design and User Experience
Mobile Interaction Design shifts the design perspective away from the technology and concentrates on usability; in other words the book concentrates on developing interfaces and devices with a great deal of sensitivity to human needs, desires and capabilities. Presents key interaction design ideas and successes in an accessible, relevant way Exercises, case studies and study questions make this book ideal for students. Provides ideals and techniques which will enable designers to create the next generation of effective mobile applications. Critiques current mobile interaction design (bloopers) to help designers avoid pitfalls. Design challenges and worked examples are given to reinforce ideas. Discusses the new applications and gadgets requiring knowledgeable and inspired thinking about usability and design. Authors have extensive experience in mobile interaction design, research, industry and teaching
