Class 09 Notes



  • Midterm Project Due
  • Questions for Luke W.

If you haven’t already done so, be sure to post a question for Luke before the end of class today:

Our class will be held in AET 235 to meet with the Graphic Design and Interaction Design Chairs at Art Center.

After meeting with Art Center, our class will have midterm presentations in AET 106.

Presentations will be rather informal but be prepared to talk about your process and how you came to your design. An important question will be the  Mobile First one:

What matters most to the user and what are the important tasks the user can do in your mobile design(s)? Refer to the interaction types from the Class 06 notes.
