Connecting is a short film that explores trends in UI, Interaction, & Experience Design
"The 18 minute "Connecting" documentary is an exploration of the future of Interaction Design and User Experience from some of the industry's thought leaders. As the role of software is catapulting forward, Interaction Design is seen to be not only increasing in importance dramatically, but also expected to play a leading role in shaping the coming "Internet of things." Ultimately, when the digital and physical worlds become one, humans along with technology are potentially on the path to becoming a "super organism" capable of influencing and enabling a broad spectrum of new behaviors in the world."

"Why geometry?I love geometry. Lines, curves, rectangles, circles, triangles are a simplification of our real world but also their building blocks. Geometry, like physics or mathematics, defines how our world is constructed. I find endless beauty in this construction. I see god in there" by Tilman, an interaction and graphic designer living and working in and near Nuremberg, Germany.
An interesting watch - these videos are part of a series created by Christian Svanes Kolding (@cskolding) that explore 'what makes great interaction design?' The films were created for the Interaction Design Association & accompany Febuary's first annual Interaction Awards, in Dublin this year.

A Graphic Design project in New York by Barbara deWilde on Kickstarter
"We have so much less graphic stuff in our lives now that we view communications on our devices...and it's not a bad thing, just different. So, with this project, I hope to make something very graphic...for you." Barbara deWilde
