It;s safe to say we are CRAZY proud to see our design work for The Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, RTE and Boston College documented and featured in a new book by Bloomsbury Visual Arts on best practice international interactive design.

We are delighted to be featured alongside Moving Brands, Wolff Olins, Fhoke and the BBC amongst others.
We even made the cover!!!

The books authors are Associate Professors Jamie Steane, Head of Visual Communication & Interactive Media Design at Northumbria University and Joyce Yee

Interaction Design explores common pitfalls, effective workflows and innovative development techniques in contemporary interaction design by tracking projects from initial idea to the critical and commercial reception of the finished project.

The book is divided into six chapters, each focusing on different aspects of the interaction design industry. Exploring design projects from around the world, the authors include examples of the processes and creative decisions behind:

– Apps, games and websites
– Responsive branding
– Complex, large-scale services
– Interactive museum installations
– Targeted promotions
– Digital products which influence real-world situations

Each case study includes behind-the-scenes development design work, interviews with key creatives and workshop projects to help you start implementing the techniques and working practices discussed in your own interaction design projects. From immersive tourist experiences, to apps which make day-to-day life easier, the detailed coverage of the design process shows how strategists, creatives and technologists are working with interactive technologies to create the engaging projects of the future.
