The workshop will address topics such as: the fundamentals of tablet hardware, visual interface best practices, gesture mapping, interaction and structure flows, prototyping tools, screen resolution issues, and a few case studies from Hot Studio’s portfolio.
In the second part of the workshop, participants will go through a rapid ideation process in which they will brainstorm ideas for their own iPad app, sketch out interfaces, and participate in group critiques of one another’s concepts. Participants are encouraged to come with an initial idea for a tablet app they would like to develop.
The workshop is intended for designers who are relatively new to interaction design and creating apps. The focus will be on designing the user interface, and not on the technical development. Additionally, the workshop will primarily focus on the iPad device.
