Question, where can I purchase mobile fonts or find a mobile font designer?
We have a game that we are designing and need specially design fonts for the mobile phone....normal fonts aren't working and we don't have the expertise inhouse for typography. We want the font to have a certain type of look and feel, but want it to work on a mobile J2ME game.
I am researching prototyping tools for mobile games that are developed in J2ME and Brew. I need to create rapid prototypes of interfaces relatively quickly and be able to port something to a mass market phone for a usability test or a marketing demo.
I need something that 1) has a low learning curve, 2) is easy to port to a mass market phone and 3) utilizes a WYSIWYG interfaces without a lot of coding.
I am in the midst of an argument with my Engineering department about how to
implement an inbox in a cell phone based application. On the web version we
are implementing a page based inbox- (the standard i.e. see the first N
entries. To see more click on Next).
I've been working on articulating some of the theory behind mobile UI
design, by examining current algorithms and heuristics from the entire
field. I'd like some feedback (blog post at ). I've got further
analysis with specific design recommendations at , but that is a
topic for a different message.
Mouse driven interfaces (software) – the "large" controls are the
edges of the screen, as they are really infinitely large in one
direction. Corners are larger still. Thus frequently used items should
go around the edges.
One of the students here at Interaction-Ivrea is looking for
information on prototyping techniques and usability for mobile phones.
He's already got the Nokia book "Mobile Usability: How Nokia Changed
the Face of the Mobile Phone." Most specifically, he's interested in
prototyping methods and techniques for mobile phones.
Anybody have some pointers? I ask here because I figure it might be an
interesting thing for others on this list. Excuse me if you've seen me
post this on another list.
I am a student speciallizing in the field of User Interface Design. I am doing a user study on mobile interface. Can someone guide me on some matter on the above topic or works that have already been done in the above area, which will help me in doing the above user study.
I haven't been able to find much information on how these studies have been done, case studies etc. I would like to know about any papers that have been publised in this field.
