Take a second. Let it sink in. The first impression might be disorienting. There are very few interface elements on the screen. Start exploring however, and you'll find out that Mockups is filled with powerful yet only-visible-when-you-need-them features. Getting your ideas out should be effortless. We've been in business long enough that we think we have learned enough about ourselves, our product, our customers and our competitive space to be able to put a stake in the ground and tell the world what we're about. Our sweet spot: the ideation phase Mockups really shines during the early stages of designing a new interface. Mockups is zenware, meaning that it will help you get "in the zone", and stay there. Mockups offers the same speed and rough feel as sketching with pencil, with the advantage of the digital medium: drag & drop to resize and rearrange elements, make changes without starting over, and your work is clear enough that you'll make sense of them later.

9 Excellent Tools for Design Mockups So you've just taken some killer photos with your new DSLR, or you captured a great video with your iPhone — what's next? While it feels natural to just post media quickly to your Facebook Page, sometimes great photos or video need their own home in the form of a personal website. But on the other hand, it's not easy to make a website layout that complements rich media. In order to make a great website, professional web designers take advantage of mockup tools to analyze layout, design and functionality. Taking advantage of these applications (some of which are 100% free) is a wise move — especially if you're interested in creating a professional website for your photography or video. Techniques for gathering requirements in Agile scrum Gathering or generating requirements in an Agile development system is unique because it's flexible. Often customers, product owners, testers and the development team (all available stakeholders) take an active role in generating user stories for new features and determining requirements. Requirements in Agile scrum are ever-changing and designed to remain flexible as needs change or as new design considerations are discovered. Discovery is a good word to describe gathering requirements in Agile. It's a process of discovering design along the way to ensure the final requirements meet the customer's needs. Because code is released intermittently, internal and external customers, testers and engineers have time to fully consider the design needs of the application feature.

Female Game Character Concept: Chapter 1 - Create a Solid Design by Marc Brunet In the first chapter of this exclusive new series we will explore various ideas in Photoshop and create a polished draft of the best one! Introduction This tutorial will cover every step in the creation of a concept for a female game character. It is geared towards industry professionals or skilled amateurs as it will assume you have good knowledge of anatomy, volumes in a 3D space, perspective and color. There won't be orthographic drawings for the final concept sheet since I find it tends to soak out all the soul of a concept once translated to 3D. Instead, we will create a front and back three-quarter view and bet on the interpretational skills of the 3D artist.

Flat design vs realism: which side are you on? Last year, flat design took over the world of digital design. The hallmarks of skeuomorphic design - embossed and bevel effects, 3D artificial textures, drop shadows and reflective shimmers - all but disappeared and were replaced with minimalist design, bold colours sharp edges and lines, simple typography and very little, if any at all, shadowing. To highlight this design trend, interactive agency inTacto created this brilliant interactive infographic Flat Design vs Realism.The cool project also includes interactive game, in which users pick a side and then battle the enemy. We spoke to inTacto's creative director Alejandro Lazos to find out more about the project. How did the concept come about?

How do I make games? A Path to Game Development - Game Programming When I talk to people looking to get into game development some of the first things I often hear fall along the lines of, "How do I make games?" or "I want to make a game like Quake/Everquest/Starcraft and…". The first is just way out of the realm of answerability, as there are too many aspects to possibly go into, and each of those components can be infinitely complex. The second, however, falls into just being unrealistic in expectations. Starcraft, Everquest and Quake were all made by teams of professionals who had budgets usually million dollar plus. More importantly though, all of these games were made by people with a lot of experience at making games.

Interactive Archives - Infographic Design Agency – Hire Expert Infographic Designers Interactive infographics are very powerful, for several reasons. One reason is that it causes your reader/user to engage with the infographic, which means they are spending more time with your content, and are interacting with it in a way that is very powerful for your brand. Secondly, interactive infographics allow you to put a lot of information into 1 infographic without it being overwhelming for the reader. The ability to have layers and sub-layers means you are not throwing too much at someone at once, and therefore not scaring them away.
