A la découverte de SketchFlow avec Expression Blend 3 (Première Partie) | Sébastien Alves Ces dernier jours je me suis intéressé d’un peu plus prés à SketchFlow, ce fameux outil collaboratif intégré à Expression Blend 3 et qui propose une véritable plate forme commune pour les designers, les développeurs et les utilisateurs afin de concevoir les premières esquisse d’interface graphique d’un projet. Cet outil permet donc de dessiner les premières maquettes et de les finaliser en les mettant en forme, fini donc les interminables échange de document Photoshop et Powerpoint entre le client et le développeur. En effet le client peut maintenant apporter directement ses feed-back au fur et à mesure de l’avancement des projets. Cette nouvelle fonctionnalité permet donc une vrai collaboration en temps réel sur la conception d’interface graphique. Avant de commencer à travailler, je vais effectuer quelques réglages sur la disposition de mes fenêtres que je vais sauvegarder dans mes « WorkSpaces » : Afin d’embellir un peu mon écran d’accueil je vais insérer une image à mon projet :

Because of compulsive disorder, Kusama Yayoi expresses hallucination from inside of her to a space, and she is finally called ‘The queen of dots’ She seems to want us to see what she sees through her works. She spreads dot prints on the every ceiling, wall and floor, and it gives us an illusion of space. Yayoi also creates an endless dot world by using a lot of mirrors and beams. “I just wanted to pull out the white circles looked like millet that endlessly multiplying up the wall from my sketchbook.” Her fancy art works become her more popular because the works are looked simply kinds of graphic design ones. This room is for arts participation by visitors.

Solo – bringing beauty to Project Management Solo is a new, stunningly designed project management app. The UI is a serious work of beauty. (Hello there, grids!) This app almost makes me want to take on clients again. Hat tip! (thank you Jerome) Why Mood Boards Matter It has happened to everyone. You spend countless hours producing a beautiful, pixel-perfect comp only to have it rejected by the client because it isn’t what they were envisioning in their mind’s eye. It’s the dreaded “I’ll know it when I see it” curse. You get sent back to the drawing board, your ego and the budget take a hit, and everyone is frustrated by the process. After this happens a few times you realize that getting the client involved earlier in the process can make a huge difference in the outcome of your design presentations. As designers, we often think we have all the answers. And if your client hasn’t been very forthcoming about what they want their new site to look like it’s even harder to hit the mark in one shot. What exactly is a mood board? Mood boards (sometimes called inspiration boards) are used in a variety of disciplines. A mood board is extremely useful for establishing the aesthetic feel of a web site. How do I create one? Style 1: Loose Collage Examples

Higher Ed Responsive Web Design Trail Blazers say 'Content-First' Gettin' responsive with it. Over the past couple of years, the advent of responsive web design has changed the way we think about websites. We no longer need to feel compelled to plan around countless devices. Rather, we can plan for a single web experience that works in unpredictable contexts. More often than not, that comes down to the content. Responsive web design, within the larger school of thought around creating adaptive content, gives content folks a lot to think about in that regard. As we know, many higher education institutions have been quick to implement responsive web designs, embracing the benefits and accepting the challenges inherent therein. The answers varied, but there was a common theme: if you’re not thinking about your content when planning a responsive web design, you can’t succeed. (On June 19, we delivered a Meet Content webinar on content planning for responsive web designs. Wright State University Mark Anderson, Senior Web Administrator: Regent College Your Turn

Because they’re happy! | Centre for Sustainable Fashion The CSF Habit(AT) project has had us exploring the myriad ways we humans wear our culture in the cities we inhabit. We live in one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world, and we are quickly realising the depth of ways the citizens of London engage with fashion as a means of communicating their individual and collective identity. But Habit(AT) doesn’t stop with London, our various projects have us working with people from all over the world and this gives us the opportunity to learn and share with other urban cultures. Over the past few years CSF has developed a close alliance with the city of Copenhagen – our Director, Dilys Williams, has lead the Copenhagen Youth Fashion Summit for the past two years, and we have worked closely with design schools KEA and Kolding on projects like Local Wisdom and Fashioning the Future. Danish fashion is defined by its design heritage of clever simplicity, functionality, clean minimalism and the belief that design is for all.

Work & Turn | Creative Workshops & Sessions Showcase of Outstanding Responsive Web Designs This showcase rounds up a collection of the most inspiring and outstanding examples of responsive web design. These websites not only look great at full scale monitor resolution, but are designed to gracefully scale according to the user’s screen size. Resize you browser, view the site on a smartphone, tablet or netbook and you’ll see the same design in a range of well presented formats. Websites are no longer viewed only on a computer monitor. Smartphones, tablets and netbooks throw a range of resolutions and different screen sizes into the mix for designers to now worry about. The idea of catering for various resolutions isn’t anything new. Ready for some examples?

This One Tree Grows 40 Different Types Of Fruit, Is Probably From The Future If you're wondering how our food will be grown eons from now, a good place to start your research might be -- not so surprisingly -- in the contemporary art world. One need only visit the website of one Sam Van Aken, an American artist who's made it his mission to combine the aesthetic of sculpture with the agricultural wonder of planting trees. The literal fruits of his labor turn images of hybridization and metamorphosis, familiar themes in art, on their heads. His project is called "Tree of 40 Fruit," an ongoing series in which Van Aken creates Frankenstein plants that have the capability of producing 40 different types of stone fruit. At first, Van Aken combines a few types onto the root structure of a single tree, allowing his "working tree" to mature to at least two years old.
