Our industry has aged into double digits, but much of the language we use to describe what we do and how things work is borrowed or repurposed, sometimes without issue, but often leading to confusion. Having a distinct set of terminology is an important sign of maturity for a line of work, those words and phrases to lead the next generation of practitioners — and it’s high time we set about creating it.
Visual design is often considered an artistic realm. Many times people shy away from design or limit their involvement despite being completely capable of creating a great design. Learning the basics of design can help dispel the notion that it is only for the artistic. According to Dan Rubin, “there’s a big separation between being artistic and being creative.”
Dan is a highly accomplished user interface designer and usability consultant. He conducted a UIE Virtual Seminar called Visual Design Essentials for Non-Designers. So many questions were generated that we couldn’t address them all during the session. Today we’re bringing you the follow up podcast in which Dan tackles those remaining questions.
