Recorded Webinar: 5 Winning Principles for Better Design
We all know that design is more than drawing lines and arcs. With SolidWorks 3D CAD you can verify form, fit, and function of your product quickly and easily before you go to manufacturing. With these winning principles, you can: - Clarify design intent from concept sketch to 3D model to production drawings - Validate product performance to reduce prototypes - Add consideration of cost and manufacturability in your process - Refine your product to pursue optimum design alternatives - Streamline creation of product manuals and assembly instructions for the shop floor See more capabilities of SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD here: https://www.solidworks.com/sw/products/3d-cad/packages.htm

Graphic Design Tutorials | The shape
Graphic Design Tutorials | The shape Graphic design tutorials deal with pictures and drawings that can be inserted into a paper model or sketch. Graphic design works can be newspapers, brochures, magazines, calendars and so on. At the base of this technique are design elements. These are: lines, shapes, mass, color and texture. Lines are one of the basics in graphic design. Lines combined can give a very graphic look to develop a project. Line - is a geometric form, a line is a point in motion, with only one dimension - length. Points create lines and lines create shapes or planes and the illusion of volume in two-dimensional formats. The three basic shapes are geometric shapes, natural and abstract. In a paper you can combine all three forms and can get something magnificent in terms of graphics. Mass is equal to the size of each element that is a work of design made to a certain size. In a paper color combination is very important. You can see a good designer after the way he combines colors in his work. A good work of art is when a color combination manages to convey something to people like emotions, feelings and so on. Texture - this is another illusory design element, because a brick is not really a brick in two dimensional designs. There are some elements called tutorials. They are carrying out work with graphics in some programs like Adobe illustrator, Corel draw and so on. Another tutorial is making major 3D effects on text. This effect on 3D text is called interpolation and uses intake style. Intake is one way to achieve 3 D objects. If you want to get an agenda or a quality schedule go on-line and call in a designer to help. You can also send him some photos you would like to be placed in your work. Graphic design is an art and in order to do that you must be born artist. Justin writes about just about anything all over the internet for the pure joy of it.

Quantifying design aesthetics | Jose E. Lugo | TEDxUND
An engineering graduate student at the University of Notre Dame, Jose Lugo was working for an automotive company when he realized that the relationship between form and function can be a stressful one. To get past this tension - and to help designers, architects and artists find new sources of inspiration and success - he wants to share how Gestalt principles can be used to quantify and promote the aesthetic qualities of products, putting form and function in harmony. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Google I/O 2014 - Design principles for a better mobile web
Speaker(s): Jennifer Gove Description: Many websites still provide a poor experience on mobile, and so we wanted to develop an in-depth understanding of what differentiates a great and an inferior mobile experience. Our work has resulted in the development of a set of user experience principles for mobile website design. The principles illustrate how to create experiences that support conversion on mobile, whether that be for a purchase, a quote or a lead. The principles have been developed out of a study that Google User Experience Research conducted in partnership with AnswerLab - a user research consultancy. We studied 100 sites with diversity across size and vertical, and held 119 in-person, one-hour usability sessions with Android and iOS smartphone users. We instructed participants to perform key conversion-focused tasks, such as purchasing an item, booking a reservation, or researching plans or prices. This presentation will illustrate key principles for designing a better mobile web. Watch all Google I/O 2014 videos at: g.co/io14videos

Today, in Egyptian communities, the conditions of the built environment need to reflect a deeper understanding of the principles of Urban Design—the art of the city. Urban design is tangent to the new global movements toward quality of life and the significant visual qualities. This paper offers an elaborated introduction to the research justification; visual chaos. It focuses on the trend of urban visualization appropriateness toward a good city form in the urban sprawl in Cairo, Egypt. It concentrates on the interactions between visual perception and Everyday Urbanism as a new approach in developing countries.

The Design of Roman and Medieval Castles
It is likely that the castle evolved from the practice of fortifying a lordly home. The greatest threat to a lord's home or hall was fire as it was usually a wooden structure. To protect against this, and keep other threats at bay, there were several courses of action available: create encircling earthworks to keep an enemy at a distance; build the hall in stone; or raise it up on an artificial mound, known as a motte, to present an obstacle to attackers. While the concept of ditches, ramparts, and stone walls as defensive measures is ancient, raising a motte is a medieval innovation. A bank and ditch enclosure was a simple form of defense, and when found without an associated motte is called a ringwork; when the site was in use for a prolonged period, it was sometimes replaced by a more complex structure or enhanced by the addition of a stone curtain wall. Building the hall in stone did not necessarily make it immune to fire as it still had windows and a wooden door. This led to the elevation of windows to the first floor -- to make it harder to throw objects in -- and to change the entrance from ground floor to first floor. These features are seen in many surviving castle keeps, which were the more sophisticated version of halls. Castles were not just defensive sites but also enhanced a lord's control over his lands. They allowed the garrison to control the surrounding area, and formed a centre of administration, providing the lord with a place to hold court. Building a castle sometimes required the permission of the king or other high authority. In 864 the King of West Francia, Charles the Bald, prohibited the construction of castella without his permission and ordered them all to be destroyed. This is perhaps the earliest reference to castles, though military historian R. Allen Brown points out that the word castella may have applied to any fortification at the time. In some countries the monarch had little control over lords, or required the construction of new castles to aid in securing the land so was unconcerned about granting permission -- as was the case in England in the aftermath of the Norman Conquest and the Holy Land during the Crusades. Switzerland is an extreme case of there being no state control over who built castles, and as a result there were 4,000 in the country.[61] There are very few castles dated with certainty from the mid-9th century. Converted into a donjon around 950, Château de Doué-la-Fontaine in France is the oldest standing castle in Europe.

Design at Large - David Kirsh, Thinking with your Body and Other Things
Thinking with your Body and Other Things David Kirsh, Department of Cognitive Science, UCSD ABSTRACT: Where does thought, creativity and understanding come from? For the past five years I have been studying the creative practice of a super expert choreographer. I have also been studying problem solving, design thinking and new approaches to situated cognition. A common element running through these studies is that in natural contexts people use resources of all sorts to think with. They use their bodies, their gestures, instruments, tools, representations and everyday objects. The simple thesis I advance is that people often think their ideas through by modeling them. The models they create are partial and personal. Sometimes these models are encoded in recognized forms: words, drawings, writing. But often people use their body to create a partial model of the thing they are trying to understand. For instance, when thinking through the structure of a movement, dancers will usually ‘mark’ the movement rather than dance it full out. Marking is a movement reduction system like gesturing. This external modeling is itself a form of thinking because it is directed, interactive and representational. It should be regarded as being as important to thought as the other modalities of expression, such as speaking, that are unambiguously expressions and enactions of thought. To defend this view I describe how thought often relies on active perception enhanced by mental projection. Because interacting with things, including moving our bodies, can improve projection it forms part of an interactive strategy for thinking. This explains how we can harness the analog computation performed by moving objects to share the computational effort of thought, and so keep thought moving forward. BIO: David Kirsh is Professor and past chair of the Department of Cognitive Science at UCSD. He was educated at Oxford University (D.Phil), did post doctoral research at MIT in the Artificial Intelligence Lab, and has held research or visiting professor positions at MIT and Stanford University. He has written extensively on situated, distributed and embodied cognition and especially on how the environment can be shaped to simplify and extend cognition, including how we intelligently use space, and how we use external representations as an interactive tool for thought. He runs the Interactive Cognition Lab at UCSD where the focus is on the way humans are closely coupled to the outside world, and how cognitive principles can be used to improve the shape, design and our felt experience of environments. Some recent projects focus on ways humans use their bodies as things to think with, specifically in dance making and choreographic cognition. He teaches courses on Design, Special Projects, Creativity and Studio based work. He is Associate Director of the Arthur C. Clarke Center for Human Imagination, he is Research Advisor for Wayne McGregor | Random Dance company, he is Adjunct Professor at the Laban Conservatoire of Dance and Music, London, and he is on the board of directors for the Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture. Representative publications are: The Intelligent Use of Space, Adapting the World Instead of Oneself, Why We Use Our Hands When We think, Situated Cognition and Problem Solving, Explaining Artifact Evolution, Thinking with External Representations, Embodied Cognition and the Magical Future of Interaction Design.
