"multi-sensory" – How might we design for these new hybrid beasts? Could we simply apply the same systemic principles we used when designing for two dimensional experiences? Or could we develop multi-sensory design systems that take the physical properties and behaviors of materials and environments into account? Working around a predefined scenario, we will use rapid prototyping techniques together with methods derived from information, game and narrative design to prototype an interface that goes beyond the flat screen.
Tool requirements: Laptop, Adobe Software
"exploring the physical world" – Nowadays, more and more creatives tend to follow the same design techniques, starting and finishing their work on their computer, ignoring all the inspiration from the physical world that could be creatively implemented to the digital one. Everything around us can be inspirational and an object for investigation. This workshop's aim is to assist finding new sources of inspiration, learn different techniques, gain additional skills and explore new areas of design through a journey of blending the physical and the digital worlds. We will start with a short introduction and a presentation of sources of inspiration. Different everyday materials will be provided to the participants (each pair will be provided with one material) to use as their tool/inspiration to create a typographic composition. The experimentations will be captured with a camera (a mobile with a camera will also work). We will explore the possibilities, the strengths and the weaknesses of our materials and push our creativity as far as possible. The last stage of the session will include a retouching tutorial which will assist the participants to edit their selected artworks. We will close the workshop by reviewing the outcomes.
