Re: Differences between design research and UX research?

@cyberdemon
Good call: UX usually refers to realms that are more software-heavy than hardware heavy.

@Gerardo: glad it was helpful!

Re: Differences between design research and UX research?

Short answer: They’re the same. Longer answer: Titles that describe design professionals’ roles (especially researchers’ roles) can vary from shop to shop. These titles describe very similar roles and activities: performing research in support of new product development. The examples you linked desc...

Old-School Tools

Starting a thread to show off our favorite tools, be they for sketching, designing, or whatever's your treasure. I'm a gearhead and love nice tools, so I know I'll post a bunch and hope all you other tool geeks do as well. First post and thread topic inspired by Yo's "whatsit?" challenge from his Sk...

Re: Yo! 2017 sketch a day

Okay, I'll bite (and identify as old . . . school): Koh-I-noor brand pencil extender doohicky, made quite nicely. German. Ubiquitous in school (90's . . . ). Lets you get a few extra sheets out of a Prismacolor or Verithin before it got too short to even sharpen. Fits Prismacolors well, but Verithin...

Re: Vehicles spotted in your neighborhood

Well, here's the thing: I stopped to admire because at first I thought it was a 5er. And I LOVE those 5er wagons. But I quickly noticed the tail on it (right below the rear window) was definitely not that beautiful 5 series wagon shape, but something mellower and smaller brother-like. And that's whe...

Spotted this little beauty today. Were these ever sold in the states? I don't think I've seen one before.

Re: Lettering

@Brian_Donlin: That's great work. I wonder how much time he spends in design and layout vs. execution. What was the earlier work like that you referred to (guessing it was less "businessy", but were there stylistic/execution/media differences as well?). The difference between pen/pencil + ink, and b...

Re: Lettering

Love me a good lettering discussion. Adding to my work at the James Moore restaurant (earlier thread here: http://boards.core77.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=36609): working on a sidewalk sign ("sandwich board"). This photo is the 4th iteration/prototype. Pedestrian "sidewalk" chalk on butcher paper; on ...
