A tool to help design for fingers and eyes, instead of pixels

There are limits to how much you can understand users' interaction with your mobile app or site if you just stick to pixels, and never leave your computer screen. You need to get designs on the device, and check if text, buttons and icons are visible, and safely clickable. 

The only  way to do this on every platform, is measuring with some sort of real life, physical object. Instead of muddling through with other tools, I made a tool specifically for doing this on mobile devices:

DogA-samtale 9.mai kl1900 - Tjenestedesign

Hei alle i IxDA Oslo

Norsk Form og Oslo Lufthavn (OSL) inviterer til DogA-samtale om tjenestedesign den 9.mai, i forlengelse av konkurransen "Tjenestedesign - reisendes opplevelse".

OSL satser nå på tjenestedesignere for å nå visjonen og styrke omdømmet sitt – fra å være god til å være best. Er ikke det en jobb for reklame- og markedsfolk? Og hvordan henger organisasjonsutvikling og tjenestedesign egentlig sammen? Designerne vil bidra til å øke flyplassens passasjerorientering og gjøre opplevelsene av å være på flyplassen bedre.

Asking Designers: to code or not to code?

While fully agreeing with the importance of code literacy for designers, I started to wonder exactly in which situations designers might want to do some actual coding themselves, and in which they shouldn't. I wrote an article about it, and I thought I'd post here the link to the article, together with the entire content. It's meant to be more of a discussion starter, so your comments are welcome!
