In a series about interaction design, jurors from the Interaction Awards give the rationale behind their choices for winning picks.
This week, PSFK is featuring a series of videos created by Christian Svanes Kolding that take on various aspects of the question: what makes great interaction design? His series explores the definition of the process, a discussion of its potential aspirations and how to achieve greatness, to more poetic documentations of various examples. The films were created for the Interaction Design Association in tandem with the first annual Interaction Awards, held in Dublin, February 2012, and can be downloaded via the website.
Here are three films that highlight the depth and variety of winners from this year’s interaction awards. Each film is a brief one-minute profile of a winner in one of the major categories, presented by various members of the jury. These films were shown at the awards ceremony in Dublin, and try to get to the core of what makes successful interaction design. One juror comments: “revealing through use what you want to create and express, is the essence of interaction design.”
