Importantíssimo post! Tive de colocar aqui, um trecho, desta entrevista com o Designer da Times que fez total sentido para mim, que vim do "tradicional design". Ele fala da tendência do design tradicional em se adaptar ao novo foco que as novas tecnologias vem acrescentando ao design e da importância da participação do usuário no design de produtos interativos, como a web por exemplo.
You've talked about the clash between traditional and new design and designers. What is the clash? Well, I think there are two ideas conflated there. First, there's a clash between traditional design and the new paradigm of digital media, where a lot of the truisms that once held firm now seem disputed, ignored, or irrelevant. But then there's a clash between traditional practitioners of design and new practitioners—and there I don't think it's a clash so much as it is a gap. These two groups, who are actually covering very similar territory, think of themselves as separate and distinct. I think that's the problem. Leia a entrevista completa no Business Week.
