Need Advice,

I'm designing a 42" widescreen 16:9 touch screen interface. What resolution should I create my prototype in, what's a good resource site I should look into.

Thanks in advance

Hi Aleya

The following blog and articles provide a good start-point...


with the motherload of design inspiration on this Vimeo channel for tui/multitouch (which I personally curate :))

Best of luck,

Regarding the resolution; I guess you're best of finding out what the hardware you're designing for runs as a native resolution and use that as a starting point. might be of some help.

When designing for touch-screen kiosks (for travel applications), I found the following publications useful:
