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

More and more motion-makers are having recourse to this most basic form of art to bring a certain special "something" to their movies. This time-consuming technique has now been done away with by digital technology. But traditional drawing ability still plays a vital role in computer animation. Here are 23 beautifully executed examples from 21 of the world's most talented exponents of combining traditional techniques with digital means.

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".

The 'Consumer' T-shirt by SHOK-1 – London, UK

A 30+ year veteran of painting in the streets and a hardcore gamer since the early 80's, SHOK-1 painted the image inspired by the classic videogame character to create a witty metaphor on our modern consumer culture. The original artwork was spraypainted on a wall in Germany in his unique X-ray style using cutting-edge freehand techniques pioneered by the artist. No stencils or tape were used to achieve the intricate translucent effects.

Lienke Raben – Amsterdam, Netherlands

“The local design scene, as opposed to the advertising scene where I worked before, is less about the big brands and more about the freedom and time to create something awesome. Animators and illustrators that I know really have a passion for what they do and my experience is also that they’re all a little bit weird, in a good way.”
