I'm a design student looking for recommendations for an application/software (or any other method) that would allow me to create a high fidelity desktop application prototype for the purposes of demonstration and testing. Unfortunately I can't code :(
Right now I'm using Axure but it's got it's limitations since it's best suited for web and mobile.
I am surveying tools for interactive web information visualization, which is not too technical for class project but still feasible enough to be applied to practical project.
I guess Flex or Flare would not be compatible anymore alogn with the declination of Flash ActionScript (is this correct...?). Then Processing would be a reasonable tool to start information visualization with? What do you think a good interactive visualization tool that can be applied to senior design course project with technical compatibility as well as design flexibility?
I'm freelance graphic designer. I know web design programs such as HTML, dreamweaver, flash, actionscript, jquery, CSS. I can design and build a website, but I have hard time "breaking" into the web design/interactive design job position/title. I need your advise. Should I go to back to school to get MA in interactive/interaction design or UX design? or certificate course will do. BTW, I also do pro-bono web design work for non-profit, but the process has been really slow.
what do you think about interaction design / technology embedded in everyday objects? Touchscreens in tables, pillows, walls.
I believe that for a technology to be adapted by larger masses you first need to go the way of integrating it into something that people already know and are confortable with - in a way that you don't disturb the usage of the (host) object itself.
So it turns out that I have a discount coupon for nostarch.com, an online bookseller. I look at their site and come across "The Art of Interactive Design" by Chris Crawford. So, has anyone read this book? Is it worth picking up?
I am new to this conference, so I can write something, that you are
not interested. In that case simply say me, that it is not a proper
theme for this conference.
So, going for a theme of this discussion. I am from Ukraine and own
my graphics design company, called "JAR Studio"
(www.design.jarstudio.com.ua, but sorry - only in russian), we are
specialized on Flash interactive graphics and informational design.
And i want to say you, that here, in Ukraine, Interactive Design
can't be viewed as separate business.This is connected with current
economic and politic situation.
