Via : Fubiz Site storyboarding and design | Web Designer - Defining the internet through beautiful design CREATING A DESIGN for a website that successfully represents the subject matter or business in question is more than chance. When we embark on a new web design project it’s always very tempting to jump straight into creating visual mockups, defining navigation placement and colour schemes. This can work occasionally, and definitely adds a freshness to the final design, but as an approach it’s full of risks. Author: Sam Hampton-Smith | Originally appeared in Issue 156 01 Gather information The first stage of any design project is to find out who you’re designing for. 02 Define your objectives Having determined who the website is going to represent, we need to establish what and who it’s for. 03 Create user personas At all points of the design process it’s useful to refer back to the business objectives, and also the target users. 04 Create a site map Now we know what we’re creating, for whom, and what the objectives are. 05 Make a mood board Here’s where the fun begins. 07 Reflect
Illustration by numbers: an in-depth guide to creating infographics - Feature Data is all around us – and savvy designers are transforming it into jaw-dropping images that also tell a story. Alice Ross charts their progress We’re in the middle of an information revolution: everywhere around us, mountains of data are being generated, and governments and organisations are increasingly releasing huge datasets, covering everything from weather patterns to spending data for us to pore over. And just as journalists have become specialists in mining these huge releases for stories covering subjects from MPs expenses to what local councils are spending their funds on, a select few designers have applied their imagination and talent to translating data into crisp and fascinating graphics, becoming experts in data visualisation and infographics. Put simply, these are images that tell a compelling story; designs that reveal something about the world around us. Data visualisation is an increasingly high-profile genre of design, particularly in editorial and corporate design.
SO MUCH PILEUP Blog Archives - Elizabeth Perez | Graphic Design + Art Direction This April, GSD&M hosted the 3% Conference in Austin, which acted as a snippet of what you’d expect to see at the main conference in San Francisco. For those who may not know, the 3% Conference focuses on the extreme gender gap among creatives, specifically creative directors in advertising. You’ll find that only 3% of our creative leadership is female. Why does this happen? Women don’t tend to ask for more. Kat Gordon, founder of the 3% Conference, stands for changing these expectations of women by encouraging women to push harder and lean in further, especially at the beginning of their careers. Overall, the event was great. Conference booklet photo courtesy of 620Studio. mint: design, art, fashion, and wedding blog by ellie snow
