Hvordan utnytte bevegelse i skjermgrensesnitt? Visuell bevegelse blir stadig viktigere, både på nettsider og i applikasjoner på ulike plattformer (desktop, mobil, TV osv.). Samtidig vet vi ganske lite om hvordan ulike bevegelser fungerer til dette formålet.
For å få vite mer, inviterer vi interaksjonsdesignere, grafiske designere, usability eksperter og andre med lignende fagbakgrunn til nettdiskusjon av ulike bevegelser for interaksjonsdesign. Vi som inviterer, er AHO og SINTEF.

A few days ago I presented my paper Social Navimation: engaging interfaces in social media, at the NORDES design research conference Engaging Artifacts in Oslo. In the presentation I analysed a set of design experiments that show how specific features of navimation can be used in social media applications. I got a lot of positive feedback after the presentation, which was made using the online presentation tool Prezi. Read more about social navimation and see the presentation at Navimation Research.
Are you compelled by the rapid development of mobile devices and their graphically sophisticated screens?
Have you noticed the increasing employment of visual motion in screen-based interfaces?
Are you interested in the possibilities and challenges for designing such interfaces?
Jørn Knutsen and Jon Olav Eikenes will arrange a full day workshop at the NORDES conference Engaging Artifacts in Oslo, August 30 – September 1, 2009. The participants will be introduced to theoretical concepts and design techniques for prototyping screen-based interfaces that make use of visual movement. Participants will work hands-on in groups, exploring techniques for developing simple prototypes. The workshop ends with a general discussion in which we address theoretical as well as practical issues.
Conference program. NB: early registration until August 1.
I will present a full peer-reviewed paper on the Nordic Design Research conference NORDES’09: Engaging Artefacts, which will take place in Oslo in the end of August this year. The paper is called ‘Social Navimation: Engaging Interfaces in Social Media’, and explores how visually dynamic interfaces can enhance social media applications. This potential is investigated through experimental design production, followed by a textual analysis of the resulting interface prototypes. The term ’social navimation’ is introduced and applied in the analysis, in which I investigate how semiotic resources from navimation are connected to features of social media. Hopefully, the paper will be of interest for both theory and practice of interface and interaction design, and new media studies in general.
UPDATE: The conference program and all papers are now available here. Download the full paper: Social Navimation: Engaging Interfaces in Social Media (PDF).
This blogpost is also posted on the Navimation Research blog.
A new blog has been born. Jon Olav Eikenes, a PhD student in the RECORD project, has recently launched the Navimation Research blog, which will be specifically related to the topic of his PhD project. The object of his study is ‘the interface’, in particular dynamic screen interfaces that employ visual motion with navigation. The blog will first and foremost relate to the progression of his research, but also include inspirational material for design, and take part in wider discussions related to interaction design and design research.
On January 24th, we at AHO presented our first design delivery for the project. The delivery is in the form of three scenarios which visualize our future visions for a football-related social network service where you can watch, create, explore and share audio-visual content.
Each scenario will be made available here as soon has they have been revised and prepared for web-viewing.
Yesterday I presented the concept of “navimation” for the first time in a public setting, at the UXnet meeting “Hvordan skaper man gode brukeropplevelser?”.
Navimation (navigation+animation) is basically a phenomena that appears by introducing animation and dynamic movement in screen-based interfaces for navigation in digital content. The main assumption is that animation and dynamic movement provide the possibility of designing new types of interfaces, and bring more flow to the experience of using a digital interface. More to come!
