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.
Best-Laid Plans and Most-Current Updates
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)
I just updated my portfolio on Coroflot with a bunch of new stuff. In particular, I have my senior project presentation there. It doesn’t cover a lot of new ground, since that same project is in my portfolio already, but it does give a lot more insight about my thought process and personal development during that project. Enjoy!
In my academic career, I’ve changed taste a lot. Lately I’ve had kind of a thing for overlapping, bright color distributed throughout the spectrum. This blog entry kind of sums it up, and gives me inspiration to do more graphic design.
