Great list about storyboarding, much of which can also be applied to product sketching, and laying out ideas on paper in general.
After a month or two setting up stuff, tweaking knobs and whatnot, and spending more time than I’d care to admit getting my custom email to work (contact form is to the left if you’d like to try it out), my site is finally ready for new eyes.
The purpose of this site is to be your one stop shop for everything in the world of design, that relates to Daniel Louder in any way. I’m sure I’ll never get used to writing about myself in third person. Or first person, for that matter.
In the coming weeks I’ll be rolling out a new portfolio, one that better showcases my sketching ability, as well as a layout that is more suited for the web and looking at on a screen. I’ll also be adding some longer form writing to this website about the world of design, and the things it makes me think about.
Finally this website will house shorter blog entries, such as the one. I hope you enjoy and I hope I keep this damn thing going.
So there won’t be any posts here in awhile. I’m trying to build up some contact for my own website. I will post a link here (and elsewhere) when it’s done.
This is a sweet database of various materials and their physical properties. Easy to use, with lots of nice tasty hard data. There are a few locked features (specs, mostly) that you have to pay to view, but for my purposes it’s great. It also has a great glossary with easily understandable definitions. I’m saving it on here for myself as much as anyone who might see this.
In order to keep my design/interaction/experience knowledge up, I’ve started watching the videos on this course. There is bound to be some overlap (after all, HCI and ID share many common tools, concepts and goals), but I noticed that many of the examples he gave were more related to industrial design than human-computer interaction.
I’ve gotten a lot done this last few months, and I’ll try to recap accordingly. I graduated, moved down South to Northern California, got a job and started being a real human being.
(Song marginally related, in a tongue-in-cheek sort of way)
