A List of Digital Design Resources

I design a lot of mock-ups and prototypes for products. Sometimes visual design is part of it, often it’s not. We design a product, make a business case with the client. Test it and start developing it. Most of our products are used within companies (B2B).

Last year I’ve been also “fixing” a lot of interactive products. Apps that technically function perfectly, but aren’t living up to the expectations in usage or behavior.

My favorite tools
I completely switched from Illustrator to Sketch last year. I use Keynote a lot and Invision to share prototypes within companies. The Sketch > Dropbox > Invision workflow works really well for me.

I played with Framer and this is definitely on my list for 2015. Since smart interaction becomes more complex, dynamic and difficult to explain without making interactive demo’s.

Here are some design libraries, references or prototyping software I bookmarked, it might help you. Want to add something to this list send me a tweet @wilbertbaan

Research
Typeform (forms)
Google Forms, use this a lot for getting a lot of insights, fast
Evernote, it’s the best way to combine notes, pictures of documents and photos

Prototyping
Pixate, prototyping tool
Mockuuups, Sketch & Photoshop mockups
Artefact Cards, Small cards for drawing and prototyping
UI8 wireframe kit
Proto.io mobile prototyping tool
Keynotopia, templates

Libraries
Sketch App Sources
Flaticon, icons
Facebox, Stock Avatars of real people
Iconic, SVG icon font

For journalists
Charted, make great looking charts from Google spreadsheets
Timeline JS, create timelines

The Design Industry Finds Itself Disrupted as Design Is Becoming a Crucial Part of Software Driven Businesses

In 2011 Marc Andreessen wrote his Why Software is Eating the World article on how software is becoming a crucial part in any company.

Software changed from the design of forms and objects into the design of interactive processes and systems. Design is becoming an indispensable part of the (software) system, much like the technology itself.

Disrupting an industry
And with every disruptive change it has an effects on the industry. The (interactive) design industry is more relevant than ever before. Changing how business is done from being bought as a service (agency model) to being internalized as part of the company.

Although this is not an overnight market change, something is changing. Design studio’s starting incubators and using their product design knowledge to kickstart startups. Or design studio’s being bought by software companies.

Design becoming an integral part of software and business and this is great for designers and for products.

Smart Cities out of Control

This is an interesting talk by Bruce Sterling about the Smart Cities of the future.

As we see more global internet services being successfully rolled out to people and becoming a fundamental part of how we move, do business and communicate we also become dependent of these services.

But what happens when technology becomes just ‘too’ important and out of reach of a community, city or country?

What is the Smart City?
