We need a new breed of production tools that do the following:
- work with real data and allow to design in context

- auto generate guidelines / production code
How a new generation of prototyping tools at Google will help designers build better software.

This Saturday is going to be the fourth iteration of the popular Barcamp for user experience in Hamburg where I'm going to talk about the new secret sauce in UX: animations

The lost art of crafting icons (11 videos) 
The art of icon design is steadily being lost with each passing year.

You'll see everything from crisp vector work to textured digital painting and raster techniques.

...that's a bold move.
As Sergey and I wrote in the original founders letter 11 years ago, “Google is not a conventional company. We do not intend to become one.” As part of that, we also said that you could expect us to make “smaller bets in areas that might seem very speculative or even strange when compared to our ...
