FROM PRINT TO DIGITAL
Designers working in print learn valuable skills in brand presentation, tone, visual hierarchy and layout. But how do these principles apply to digital design?
Join us as Carolyn Chandler gives an overview of interaction design principles and considerations that print designers should understand when moving from static, printed pages, to dynamic and interactive interfaces. You'll leave with an understanding of major differences, common misconceptions, and a list of resources for continued learning in the digital space.
Jim Potsch will talk about his own transition from traditional, print-based design to web design to user experience design.
Carolyn Chandler is the experience design director for Manifest Digital, an interactive agency in Chicago. She's currently teaching an intensive web design course for Code Academy, and has taught interaction design at DePaul University. She's managed UX teams for over 12 years.
Jim Potsch is Vice President, Design Director at Bank of America in Chicago, where he leads a UX team of three visual designers creating user interfaces for web applications as well as mobile and tablet devices. Jim started his career in the trade magazine industry with Stagnito Communications where he was converted from freelancer to fulltime employee. He transitioned to the dotcom world in 1999 with a start-up called L90. Jim graduated from Illinois State University with a degree in Graphic Design in 1997.
