Too often, we design systems for boxes—whether big, metal boxes that it would take a forklift to move or little plastic boxes that we carry around in our pockets—rather than thinking about how they are connected and how people can share and use them to do work. When it’s all about the computer or device, we design systems, tasks, and content that fit into those little boxes. We create flowcharts that progress in predictable, linear ways within a computing system and present information as little boxes of content, on glowing screens.
I'm excited to announce that tickets are now available for Fluxible, a 2-day design conference in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario from September 22-23. Check out our terrific program, jam-packed with amazing speakers -- some of whom you'll recognize as regular contributors to IxDA.
Hey, all! Looks like we'll have a good turn out to this Thursday's event, Talking People Off Of Ledges. It'll be a great opportunity to catch up with your fellow designers and also meet our partners-in-action, the content strategist.
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.
This coming Monday, February 13th, AIGA is hosting a follow up event to last Fall's HIVE Conference. A panel of seasoned developers will share insights, tips and stories about working with designers. Mingling and networking to follow.
