Designing Frameworks For Interaction and User Experience

23,202 views

Published on

Design frameworks offer substantial benefits to all parties involved in creating high quality user experiences. Frameworks allow designers to better adapt to the rapid shifts in the digital environment by leveraging modularity and structure, and accommodating the far-reaching changes inherent in the rise of co-creative dynamics. This presentation - part of a full-day workshop delivered at the 2009 Information Architecture Summit - identifies the elements common to all design frameworks, and offers best practices on effectively putting frameworks into practice. Altogether, it is a short course in the creation and use of customized design frameworks.

  8. 8. Framework: A structure for supporting or enclosing something else, especially a skeletal support used as the basis for something being constructed. A fundamental structure, as for a written work. A set of assumptions, concepts, values, and practices that constitutes a way of viewing reality. 8 Beyond Findability: Frameworks IA Summit 2009 | Joe Lamantia | MediaCatalyst

Modular America Cross-Cultural Perspectives on the Emergence of an American Way “uniquely American tendency to organize cultural artifacts out of component parts rather than structured wholes” ...it has affected cultural domains as diverse as manufacturing, architecture, education, and jazz. modularity opens new perspectives on American culture as a whole.” 28 Beyond Findability: Frameworks IA Summit 2009 | Joe Lamantia | MediaCatalyst

  34. 34. We were used to having walls. Context was key, but context depends on there being walls. Online, there are no walls. The walls have come crumbling down. boyd, danah. 2007. quot;Incantations for Muggles: The Role of Ubiquitous Web 2.0 Technologies in Everyday Life.quot; O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference, San Diego, CA.

  35. 35. Take Away Digital objects are portable » People choose and manage streams of content functionality » Common structure allows easy manipulation » RSS, microformats, APIs, metadata, SOA, file formats » Environment provides shared services » OpenSocial, openID, cloud computing, analytics, search » Digital atoms are ʻvisibleʼ accessible
  36. 36. Convergence Media platforms converge » Experiences span multiple media, channels, formats » Narrative, interaction, emotional elements must sustain transitions » Platforms and delivery converge » Game console, PC, media center, time-shift [Tivo], data backup [Time Machine] » Advertising permeates all experience environments » Social networks, virtual worlds, game experiences, film, UGC, widgets, environmental services (search)
  37. 37. Digital = Social Experiences have a ʻsocial layerʼ » Social interactions are the source of experience value » New environments are primarily social » Networks become primary organizing structures » Experiences shaped by linked overlapping networks » Exchanges occur via marketplaces (information, services, goods, reputation)

  44. 44. In the future, an object's life begins on a graphics screen. It is born digital. Its design specs accompany it throughout its life. It is inseparable from that original digital blueprint, which rules the material world. When Blobjects Rule the Earth by Bruce Sterling SIGGRAPH, Los Angeles, August 2004 44 Beyond Findability: Frameworks IA Summit 2009 | Joe Lamantia | MediaCatalyst
  45. 45. Information Shadows Once you have the capability uniquely identify anything immediately, you can attach meta information to it. Any meta-information. How much is this worth on eBay? Which of my friends has one? Will this go with my Momʼs china? Will it make me sick if I eat it? Was it made by children? I call this digital representation as accessed through a unique ID, an objectʼs “information shadow” and I now see them attached to just about everything. 45 Beyond Findability: Frameworks IA Summit 2009 | Joe Lamantia | MediaCatalyst
  46. 46. Service Objects “...changing the physical object to a service, for which the thing youʼre looking at is but a single instantiation of that agreement. The solid object grows a dotted line that is filled-in as- needed, when-needed, and with the features that are needed.” 46 Beyond Findability: Frameworks IA Summit 2009 | Joe Lamantia | MediaCatalyst
  47. 47. Devices are Service Avatars “Devices become projections of services. They are physical manifestations, avatars, projections into physical space of abstract services, but are not services themselves.” * Objects become subscriptions. 47 Beyond Findability: Frameworks IA Summit 2009 | Joe Lamantia | MediaCatalyst
  48. 48. Granularity Ubiquitous computing devices can come in all sorts of sizes and the user experience design for them must take this into account. 48 Beyond Findability: Frameworks IA Summit 2009 | Joe Lamantia | MediaCatalyst
  49. 49. Siftables Siftables are cookie-sized computers with motion sensing, neighbor detection, graphical display, and wireless communication. They act in concert to form a single interface: users physically manipulate them - piling, grouping, sorting - to interact with digital information and media. Siftables provides a new platform on which to implement tangible, visual and mobile applications. 49 Beyond Findability: Frameworks IA Summit 2009 | Joe Lamantia | MediaCatalyst

  62. 62. “The systems we keep will be hybrid creations. They will have a strong rootstock of peer-to-peer generation, grafted below highly refined strains of controlling functions. Sturdy, robust foundations of user-made content and crowd-sourced innovation will feed very small slivers of leadership agility. Pure plays of 100% smart mobs or 100% smart elites will be rare. The real art of business and organizations in the network economy will not be in harnessing the crowd of quot;everybodyquot; (simple!) but in finding the appropriate hybrid mix of bottom and top for each niche, at the right time. The mix of control/no- control will shift as a system grows and matures.” Kevin Kelly The Bottom is Not Enough http://www.kk.org/thetechnium/archives/2008/02/the_bottom_is_n.php 62 Beyond Findability: Frameworks IA Summit 2009 | Joe Lamantia | MediaCatalyst
