Start With Interaction
Designers of all stripes start with love of content. Often we let our vision of our creations cloud our decisions about what’s best for our audience. For the best design, we must start with interaction.
Decide what needs to be interacted with
Limit interaction to natural motion and behavior
Design to the limits
Our visions are naturally big and it is our nature to get lost in our projects. This strength of vision also makes us forget that the audience is not us. They do not know our language and we need to teach them how to use our inventions.
By establishing a limited vocabulary of interactions, we create the widest opportunity for the audience and users to love our designs as much as we do.
Summary: After your world and vision is established, go back to the start. Ask ‘what do I need to interact with?’ Define a limited vocabulary of interaction and then design the access to your content to those limits.
