In this talk at IxDA’s Interaction’19, Jon Kolko will show you why, when, and how to create stories that set design strategy. You’ll see examples of both successes and failures, learn where these narratives are contextually most relevant and useful, identify the key components that make these stories successful, and gain the ability to form and present a vision of the future to drive product and service strategy.
This year as part of its completely redesigned annual global conference the Interaction Design Association (IxDA) is organizing a Student Competition searching for “Excellence in Interaction Design”. Entries have already been streaming in from students representing programs from around the world. This week we have some big announcements and a really big reminder:
After careful consultation among the jury and feedback from representatives of some of the top IxD educational institutions from around the world, the competition commitee have made two big decisions: (1) DEADLINE EXTENSION: We are extending the deadline by a full month to 31-Dec-2009 (11:59p US/Pacific Standard Time). If you have submitted your work prior to 26-Nov (noon US/Pacific Standard Time) you can re-submit your work. Otherwise, all submissions are final. (2) GROUPS/TEAMS: We are now opening up the competition to group submissions. However, and this is a big “however”, only 1 representative can be declared the “primary representative” for a team or group and be eligible to win the scholarship to Interaction 10 | Savannah and compete in Stage 2 of the competition.
Submissions are now open for the Interaction Design Association (IxDA) Global Student Interaction Design Competition. Submissions are due by November 30th, 23:59, US/PST. This competition is the first of its kind: IxDA will bring 5 finalists to Interaction 10 | Savannah, the 3rd Annual International Conference co-hosted by the Savannah College of Art & Design where they will compete head to head to find a winner. All finalists will be given a full scholarship for attending the conference.
While interaction designers have strong evaluation skills through quantitative research such as usability, IxD lacks the same types of aesthetic-based design criticism that graphic design, architecture and industrial design have. This 25-minutes presentation is meant to offer the beginnings of a discussion around what could are the foundations of interaction design, how do they impact aesthetics of interaction and how can they be used for design critique within an interaction design practice […]
