Mind Mapping

I know this is a funny video, but from a usability standpoint, she is giving a literal interpretation of her mind map. This, is how people actually navigate the world around them. Whether it's inside a building, out in the woods, or in a city, your brain is building this type of map.

There are people who have damage to a section of their brain, that prevents them from creating these types of maps. It's called: topographical disorientation

Here's a documented case:

Dammit. After +Matias Duarte's talk about the amount of deasign this year at Google I/O, I really hope I get that Golden Ticket.
 
"You'll absolutely need a screen... but you'll need more than one."
Matias Duarte helped design the T-Mobile Sidekick, the Helio Ocean, and Palm's webOS. Now, he directs the look and feel of Google's Android operating system. He's probably not the guy you'd expect...

Making the user wait, is an opportunity to have fun. Don't just give them a lame spinner/throbber.
 
Cloud syncing animation for an upcoming awesome app - first draft. Yay or nay?

The files are dropping because the app is downloading/syncing the file from your cloud service, rather than sync from your phone to the cloud.

When the user touch on the cloud, there will be more items dropping from the cloud - just for fun.

Spoiler? Pah-lease.
I knew that more than five years ago.

A conversation about design
/by +Nadya Direkova  #design   #io14    

At Google I/O this year, we will have sessions and workshops focused on design, geared for designers and developers who are interested in design. We're looking forward to exchanging ideas with you both at the conference and online afterwards. Remember, registration is open until Friday.

Stateless Design

In an emergency, fine motor control, and your ability to process information breaks down. This is why nuclear power plant control panels look as they do. Nothing has state. Each section has a specific purpose. Buttons and are large and spaced out. If there's a computer screen, it serves one purpose, and get's it's own mouse.

It may look daunting and confusing. But, in reality, it's designed for absolute simplicity.
