INTERACTIVE DESIGN

Posted on | October 25, 2012

During my research for interactive designers, I came across some super awesome studios and hence, would like to share their work:

YESYESNO

YesYesNo began as a studio operated by three friends, two of whom always said ‘yes’ to every potential project and one who was always saying ‘no’. A lot of their projects are about using body or gestures, so they avoid using interface, buttons and instructions. What’s cool about them is that they create something that someone just understands, either from watching other people or from experimenting it themselves. Their idea of the future of interactive design: Smaller devices = new modes of interaction and better and different sensors = new modes of sensing. The future of designing also means using new means of fabrication, such as laser cutting and 3D printing.

 

Here’s some interactive design they did for Nike and a short glimpse into their other work:

 

 JEAN CHRISTOPHE NAOUR

Jean-Christophe Naour is a french interaction designer who is based in Seoul, South Korea. Jean-Christophe works a lot with a mix of design and code as he often produces work for mobile phones, mp3 players, GPS and installations. If interface design is the look, interaction design is the feel, he says. And great interaction design can shape how people interact with their environment.

I fell in love with JC’s project ‘Poly’, a creative app for the iPad – it draws with points and turns your pictures into geomatric array of colour. JC said that this project was inspired by the Triangulation invented by the mathematician Boris Delaunay in 1934.

   

In case you wondered, yep, it’s Barack Obama and Brad Pitt. To see more: http://jcnaour.com/

 

HERVÉ DIEUDONNÉ

Belgium based graphic designer Hervé Dieudonné is a self-taught painter. He combines different techniques in his work, seeking inspiration at flea markets, dusty old books, grandma’s attic or simply on the internet. Travel, he says, has widened his vision and artistic scope and propelled this perpetual search for ‘the perfect image’. I really like his work as it articulates around lost and forgotten images. www.hervedieudonne.com

 

     

 

FILTHY LUKER

Brithis art ‘geek’ Filthy Luker confronts his viewers, mainly in the urban space on the streets with a gigantic green octopus, a huge banana peel or a winking water pipe. His ‘art attacks’ radiate good humour however you might look at these slightly grotesque figures and are created with the aim of getting people to view the world in a different way. www.filthyluker.org
