“organizar la mente hacia el diseño web y social media” // thnxz territoriocreativo.es – @tcreativo


El otro día me crucé con una gran frase del diseñador estadounidense Shawn Leslie: El buen diseño significa no tener que decir nunca “Haz Clic Aquí”.  ¿Qué más decir? Es evidente que la afirmación de Leslie resume a la perfección lo que es el diseño web, y muchos de los que nos dedicamos a ello, deberíamos tenerla escrita en el salvapantallas. A través de estas líneas intentaré aportar algunas ideas para aproximarnos al diseño para web y más concretamente en redes sociales, precedidas de una serie de cuestiones técnicas previas relacionadas con el cambio que supone pasar del diseño gráfico para impresión al diseño para web, muy útiles sobre todo para poder olvidarnos de ellas cuanto antes.

El diseño en ausencia de contenido no es diseño, es decoración.

The distinction between interfaces & graphics. by Michael Dick

A very common question I encounter with in our industry is sort of a trick question, they ask me if I do graphic design. I reply with, no. Then the next question that follows asks me who designs my graphics.
In any industry there is terminology and that terminology gets mixed up. Some people use it one way and others use it their way. The case against Interface and Graphic design is the most often encountered in ours. Trying to explain to someone that I’m an interface designer but not a graphic designer can get tricky.
Let’s settle the score here.

Interface design is when one is designing something that will be used by humans. The understanding of how a user thinks, learns and adapts is important knowledge.

I’m not down playing graphic design in any way, it’s just different. For example, graphic designers have the intention to grab an emotional response visually. While Interface designers have the intention to grab a logical response mentally.

You and Your Rockstar Resume

I admit that I have spent way too much time trying to find the “best post” for today, and after a long weekend, I am feeling overwhelmed by all my choices and ideas. So, I’m finally done talking, and have chosen to write about two alternative resume formats including a “Social Resume” and VisualCV – both are online tools aimed at helping candidates tell their best story through personal branding. These shouldn’t replace your “old school” resume format, but they may provide additional networking opportunities:

The Social Resume: Our friends at the Brazen Careerist Network launched a new platform this past March, aimed specifically at Generation Y’ers (those born after 1978). This tool is intended to get conversation started online in “real time” and bring the younger set to the forefront of ideas, strategy and thought. If you’re an entry to mid-level career person, this site is for you. The Social Resume is a one-of-a-kind, interactive showcase of your top ideas from around the web. According to Brazen, “this online tool provides a place to organize your thoughts and ideas so that employers, colleagues and friends don’t forget just how smart your really are.” Geared to the post 1978 crowd, the Brazen Careerist site attracts recruiters to its site as thousands of potential employees showcase their potential, strategic thinking and online branding effort.
