Interactive Design Issue

Redefining the term "user-friendly"

Design usually has one of two goals, often both: to be aesthetically pleasing to a viewer and to "sell" whatever brought it into being, be that an actual product, a brand, an identity or an idea. Interaction design lives or dies through recipients' responses to it. If as result of seeing it, the viewer cannot or does not want to "inter-act" with it, then the design quite clearly hasn't worked.

As one practitioner noted: "We need to be able to tap into audiences' minds in order to build intuitive designs that help enhance their lives and extend the way they interact – this is really what interaction design is about, it's about building experiences for people."

Motion Gallery: Hand-Drawn

Hand-drawing adds magic to the digital environment

Branding: MoMA

Challenge of selling sole client who "sells" world's finest art

Situated in the heart of New York's Manhattan, the Museum of Modern Art has been an iconic representative of the best of contemporary art and crafts for more than half a century. Surely, it sells itself? Well no, keeping a global public interested in and enthusiastic about what it has to offer – both its permanent collections and its ever-changing exhibitions – is a constant challenge for its highly professional in-house design team. The one rule they are urged to observe is "Don't try to compete with the art – let it speak for itself".

"It is essential to experiment with printing processes ‒ and even create new ones, with different and unexpected materials. Try to use something cheap that nobody would ever think of. That can overcame any limitation and even inspire new ideas."

Most fascinating about Steffen Knoell’s works is that it can be seen even if only a very few elements are used. Otherwise it could end up as a very overwhelmed layout.
