Another experience prototype short, for those interested in the genre.
Purpose to articulate and visualize a product concept in context of use. Not
for external audience, but for internal assessment and buy-in. Shot and
produced over 3 days by 7-8 ID & VC students in my Design Scenarios &
Simulations course at KU Design. Problem involved spotting opportunities
for messaging in school environments where mobile phones and text messaging
devices are prohibited. Students are credited at the end.

Re: [IxDA] Axure... Thoughts?

In a similar thread, a new Mac OS X native application called Antetype just started beta testing. From their site[1]:

"ANTETYPE is a brand new, ground-breaking design application that supports user interface designers at every step of their work. Design beautiful interfaces, invent new widgets, style them and put it all together in an interactive prototype!"

I haven't had much time to kick the tires yet, so I'll hold my thoughts for now.

Luke Wroblewski Interview Excerpt

IxDA Board Member Luke W on visual interaction design!

"Think of visual design as the “voice” of interaction design and
information architecture. It communicates the importance of (and
relationships between) the content and actions within an application."

Five Lenses: Towards a Toolkit for Interaction Design

Well, I am not sure how valuable such very abstract essays are. It sure
doesn't help most practitioners in their daily work. I'd even doubt that the
'theorists' have much to gain from this essay. A lot of this kind of
'de-constructionistic theories' (not sure of that is proper English...:-)
lead to a 'analytic view on (a part of) the world' and they are only in some
cases useful for the 'construction' of new things in the world of
'interaction design'.

In other words, what is the problem that this essay addresses? That there
isn't a unified theory for interaction design? Do we need one?
