Well so much for the daily posts. I have a decent excuse for the first two or three missing days, pretty much nothing for the rest of them. I’m just terrible at keeping to any sort of schedule I guess. But let’s put that aside and wrap up this Newspeak project thingy!
It’s time for the new projects to commence!
Here’s some extra bits and pieces from the welcome week:
It’s been a while. Time to dust off this digital notebook, grab the metaphorical pen, and get back into this blogging thing. The plan going forward is daily posts, but we’ll just have to see if I’m able to stick to that. Might have to employ some sneaky tactics like scheduling posts in advance! Advanced stuff, I know~ There probably won’t be a recap of my second year on the Interactive Design course, at least not in the foreseeable future. So let’s just jump straight to the third one! More specifically the joint project that happened on the welcome
I have to admit I’m a bit lost here. I have complained about interactions and dissected user interfaces in two separate posts, and even have some basic ideas about what I want to do. Yet despite all of that I just can’t get myself to just sit down, and write a first draft script and do some early storyboards. So I guess I’ll just do what I usually do: start writing a blog post and see where I end up. If you’re seeing this that means I have actually finished that, and published it onto my blog!
The final (well, the last one that isn’t the logbook) submission for Critical Analysis is right around the corner, and I have the feedback from both the presentation and the research board. With that in mind I wanted to write up some sort of guidelines for my essay, based on what I want to write about and what was missing from my previous projects.
In my previous post I looked at some examples of “interactive films/videos”, and tried to see how they worked on a narrative level (while also lightly touching on some mechanics and interface issues here and there). For today, I thought I’d move this along a bit more by using the same examples, and maybe some new ones too, to compare the interface designs of these interactive videos.
With the Band or Brand website done (I might write one last post about that one, I don’t know yet), we have a new project on our hands: make a static video, that can then be interacted with through a website’s interface. So, I’ll start by looking at some initial thoughts on this.
With the deadline for submitting the research board getting closer and closer, it’s time to get some basic designs done, so I only have to worry about filling it in with content.
As usual, I’m way behind on posting stuff on this blog, so here’s some more catching up. This time around it’s the first real typography brief we have, which is titled “Hidden Typography”.
