Rethinking Content Creation
Content creation is at the heart of the web and yet we fail to deliver experiences that match todays needs. This talk aims at rethinking the way web publishing works and see how we can create experiences that allow people to express themselves in richer ways. On top of that Adrian unveils his reimagined distraction-free content editor for WordPress – FrontKit.
Smart Transitions In User Experience Design
Transitions, animations, and motions within the user interface can enhance the overall user experience and tell a subtle story about your product, sometimes even making an interaction more intuitive and easier to use. No longer can we think of user interfaces as static designs and add the magic of interaction later on. Instead, we need to embrace the interactive nature of the web from the very beginning and think of it as natural constituent.
In this presentation we will examine why motion is such an important factor in contemporary user interface design and how can we use it as a tool to create more immersive web/mobile experiences that are both easier to understand and more delightful in their use.
