about PARC forum


Design examples can powerfully illustrate concepts and alternatives, and the Web opens up new opportunities for design sharing, reuse, and collaboration. How can software tools amplify this value? My group’s research empowers more users to design interactive systems, expert designers to be more creative, and programmers to engage in more design thinking. Much of this work emphasizes prototyping for its pivotal role in design innovation, collaboration, and creativity. Our research has introduced techniques for users to demonstrate interactive behavior, sample existing design elements to create new ones, and tightly integrate the creation and evaluation aspects of design. We explore these issues on mobile, desktop, web, and sensor-based platforms. We seek to understand the fundamental psychological and social ingredients of design excellence in order to create more effective design tools and practices. We prototype that future interfactive systems; a current project looks at the future of mobile interaction.
