    • SXSW 2016 - You're a Phony, And That's Okay.


      from Chanelle Henry Added 8 0 0

      There's a theme that's surfacing within our culture with the rise of authenticity, transparency, and vulnerability. We are starting to be more open and empathetic towards our peers and ourselves about our faults, and like it or not, we are discovering that we are phonies. This isn't a new phenomenon however, it's just that we are becoming more open about discussing the idea of how much the Imposter Syndrome impacts our life. Whether we embrace it, run from, reject it or hide from it, it's not going away. At the end of the day, we have to come to terms with this concept in order to get out of our own way to become what we are meant to be. We ARE phonies, but we are not alone. (imaphony.com)

            • Limit Yourself: Design Constraints Spur Creativity


              from Sarah Lukachko Added

              “Here is one of the few effective keys to the design problem—the ability of the designer to recognize as many constraints as possible…” ( Charles Eames, Design Q&A, 1972 ) A fundamental joy of good design is successfully solving a problem. Our small, in-house team invited numerous problems when we took on a new responsibility with unfamiliar content, high visibility, limited time, and uneven skills. There were a few hiccups. But by enumerating constraints -- and inventing new ones -- we created over 1200 new illustrations in under nine months. At the same time, we improved the team's creativity, morale, technical skills, and stature.

Disney Infinity for Reluctant Learners in STEAM (Submission / feature video for SXSW Edu 2016 Playground Hands On session.) Engaged students may already be coding, but how do we reach reluctant learners? The Connected Youth project at the Austin Public Library has been trying one way that may surprise you: Disney Infinity. Through characters and avatars they already know and love, at-risk youth are sneaking up on STEAM. Game design, decision-making, worldbuilding, logic, storytelling, collaboration, experimentation, innovation, exploration: all become possible through the virtual worlds of Disney Infinity. Not just for libraries (and not just for home), this popular platform for virtual reality may yet surprise us all. Come try and see why. “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one small step.” –Lao Tzu - Familiarize yourself with Disney Infinity: How it works, why it engages, what it can and cannot do. - Collaborate on worldbuilding, co-creating a virtual space or terrain with ease in the Toy Box. Minecraft does it differently, with pros and cons. - Explore the basic tutorial for level building and game design in the Toybox, and see how Templates open the door to much more.

                • Think Outside the App – The Human UI for the Connected World Around Us


                  from Chaotic Moon Studios Added 16 0 0

                  Smart phones have become a remote control for our lives and we’re too tethered to these devices. But is this how we want to interact w/ the world, staring at a small screen as we walk around like zombies? It’s time for designers to consider new ways to interact w/ the Internet of everything surrounding us. IoT has arrived with a growing focus on machine-to-machine communication, but human-to-machine communication is equally important in this new frontier of UI design. Think Human UI, where our movements, voice, thoughts, etc. cause systems to respond to us through our environment. Smart devices can play a role, but invisible & screen-less interfaces are critical for creating the best experiences.

                  • SXSW Panel Picker Submission - Building the Perfect Country


                    from BAV Consulting Added 4 0 0

                    The cultural wealth of nations is vast and varied. But what if we could put them all together? What would the 'ideal country' look like? In a new study with Wharton and U.S. News, we asked 18,000 global citizens, business leaders and influentials to rate 60 countries on 75 dimensions. For instance, Sweden is seen as the most environmentally friendly; income equality is best among The Danes; Australia is the ideal place to raise a family. Linking perceptions to GDP, our expert panel will unpack the data and build the composite picture of the perfect nation. While we’re far from it today, what leadership and policy implications can result by learning and applying what every country does best?
