Animation for Interaction Design

I'm looking for resources or materials on "Animation for Interaction Designers".

As an interaction designer, particularly for digital experience designs, I feel there is a need to understand basic animation principles to better handle page transitions, UI element movements and animated data visualizations or so on.

It would be really glad if anyone can help me with articles or online resources on the same.

sketch style wireframes

Been experimenting with 'sketch' style wire frames this morning, having seen
lots of similar things around/online. Not entirely sure of their benefits
though. I came up with:

- They are quicker to create (I knocked mine up with the freehand tool in
Xara Xtreme)
- They make people feel more comfortable scribbling on them
- They (can) look cool.

Any thoughts?

Cheers,

Chris

Visio and InDesign compatibility?

Hi all-

I just started working at a firm that uses Visio as its standard
wireframe tool. I also have InDesign on my machine and would prefer
to use this instead. (personally, omnigraffle fan here, but I'm
required to use Windows)

Searches for related keywords, an IxDA discussion search, and another
30 minutes of playing with several file formats haven't helped. I
can't figure out how to convert a file made in Visio to open with
layers intact in InDesign and vice versa.

Anyone know of a way to make these two apps play nice with each
other?

Thanks!
Jon

Basic time tracking and invoicing for a solo consultant

I'm neck-deep in looking at various options for doing basic time tracking
and invoicing just for me, not a whole agency. I've wasted a ton of time on
this and figured I'd tap the collective wisdom here.
Up until about a year ago I used a pretty simple timer on my Treo and an
Excel spreadsheet for the invoices.

Telecom Self Service (Web & Mobile)

Hi Everyone.

I am doing an impossible research. Currently I am trying to find out how all the different telecom self-service portals work. As it's almost impossible for me to be a customer for all mobile carrier (around the world), I am asking the community to help.

This thread can act as a resrouce gathering for pattern study in telecom self-service. (if we manage to gather enough screenshots) I think this would be benefitial to everyone as this is not just a portal, not just a website, but more of a service design on the web.

Clickless Web Interface?

Immediately reaction - and I can pull down the heuristic about this - when a
form pops up to ask me how I felt about the interface - i accidentally
selected something and voted -
There was no user feedback - and no way to cancel a bad selection. The
ability to get reinforcement from an action, and to escape from a bad one -
or Undo - it a critical human factors flaw in the clickless interface.
Also - there is only one way to navigate and select things. This is very
poor for all non-gestural user navigation interfaces - Kiosks, hand-helds -
etc.

Aside from research, what do you do to relate better to users?

I'm a PC regular who was "forced" to use an iMac over the past week to
complete tasks that were very important to me. I succeeded, but there was
plenty of frustration, confusion, and inefficiency.

It struck me that this experience will help me interpret user research
better.

What do YOU do, in addition to user research, to better relate to and
interpret your data? Here are three things I've done:

Inserting jQuery into Axure

Do you mean integrate it into the generated HTML prototype, or into
the actual .rp file? I don't think you can do the second - and the
first is obviously a problem because your code would get overwritten
when you re-generated the prototype. I'd recommend coding an
HTML/jQuery prototype outside of Axure if the interactivity is that
important.
