If you’re ready to jump into designing for tablets, this will be a great two-part workshop for you. Given the mass adoption of tablet devices over this past year—and the growing interest within the AIGA SF community—this workshop has been created to present the fundamentals of designing tablet applications as well as tablet optimized websites.

After starting with a quick pizza dinner, the workshop, run by Henrik Olsen and Paul Smith of Hot Studio, will address topics such as: the fundamentals of tablet hardware, visual interface best practices, gesture mapping, interaction and structure flows, prototyping tools, screen resolution issues, and a few case studies from Hot Studio’s portfolio.

On the second night of the workshop, participants will go through a rapid ideation process in which they will brainstorm ideas for their own iPad app, sketch out interfaces, and participate in group critiques of one another’s concepts.

The workshop is intended for designers who are relatively new to interaction design and creating apps. The focus will be on designing the user interface, and not on the technical development. Additionally, the workshop will primarily focus on the iPad device. (Yes, we know there are many others, but time is limited.)
