    Interface Design

    Hey guys,

    Does anyone know of any websites that can help with industrial interface design inspiration and or tips or tutorials? Trying to come up with some industrial gui that doesn't look like it's from the 1950's retro sci-fi.

    Try really thinking about the interface user. That's, sort of, the point of an interface.

    Try thick paper or thin cardboard and a scalpel for interface paper prototyping. It allows for a lot of fast iterations.

    Try Google, Yahoo, or Wikipedia for more details.

    Some acronyms and keywords: GUI, HCI, UI, UX, IA, UE, IxD, UCD, interface, interaction, design, human, screen, user, information architecture, ergonomics, usability, accessibility, human factors, ...

    Have Fun!

    Of course, if you just need something that looks like some fancy interface but has no real use then some graphic design basics like layout, grid, simple macro typography, and whitespace should get you far enough.

    Thanks a lot Mario. I'll be sure to check out the terms you recommended. I'm a bit clueless about this field and a superficial search didn't bring up many favorable results when I tried it earlier.
