Re: How to Choose the Best 3D Software for You

A Designer's aim, in any field, is to create the best solution to the brief. The human factors, efficiency, and ease of use, as in your examples, are problems that a good UX Designer would solve. I'm not sure why you view them solely as ID skills. And UI/UX Designers would have developed many skills...

Re: How to Choose the Best 3D Software for You

InvertedVantage, you wrote that the Industrial Designer is responsible for the look and feel of the smartphone, and for its UI. I just pointed out that that is not entirely correct, in case you wanted to correct your article. It's cool that you're creating these resources. You're covering several fi...

Re: How to Choose the Best 3D Software for You

You're saying that UI/UX design is an Industrial Designer's responsibility. It isn't. It's a UI/UX Designer's role. In cases where an IDer is involved in it, as per the case with Jony Ive running Apple's software team (which I presume you're referring to), he is acting as a UI/UX Designer. Alongside...

Re: Apple watch and new iphone

I'm going to drop more science and psychology on this forum (you can thank me for the first use of ' skeumorphism ' on Core, yes that's right, search it) - in the form of the strong aversion called trypophobia . Yes Slippyfish! You've just uncovered a life-long mystery of mine. My first childhood m...

Re: How to Choose the Best 3D Software for You

By interface, you're referring to the user interface of the software, right?

Re: How to Choose the Best 3D Software for You

Industrial Designers can tackle problems as diverse as how an aircraft cockpit looks and feels, to how the touchscreen interface works on their phone.

The look, feel, and interface of your latest smartphone are all part of the industrial designer’s responsibility
That's a UI/UX Designer's job.

Re: Laptops with stickers on them..Unprofessional?

I don't like tacky stickers, but I am a fan of decorated products when done well. Can't knock originality and individuality. http://www.wallpaper4me.com/images/wallpapers/1980416771_eb675e0d3f_o-310174.jpeg And these laser etched macs look pretty cool. http://www.blogcdn.com/www.tuaw.com/media/2006/...

Re: Design illy time: the new contest by illy

Well said Dan. My point of view exactly. I think Core77 is probably the most active and influential online design forum about, and admin should do what they can to set the right example, and uphold this profession. It's really wrong to see creative professions quickly being devalued and affected by ...

Re: Mattress shopping......why all the BS?

I bought a new mattress a couple of months back, and did a load of research. I went for 1000 pocket-sprung mattress with the intention of adding a 4" topper (goose down or polyester). The number of springs and their strength relates to the firmness of the mattress, depending on the weight of the per...

Re: Favourite book?

I think I misunderstood your intention to get more views by having it in two sub-forums, and didn't know that it moves up in General Discussions. Yes, I searched and read the topics beforehand.

Re: Favourite book?

@Lmo: It's picked up interest now, and it's a very valid and useful topic on design. I'd appreciate it if was moved back to the correct sub-forum. @TomJones: I'm interested in most areas of design. I think it will be best to hear only about books that have had a big impact on you, and how. Maybe one...
