Web Native Iconography - New approaches for richer communication
Time: TBD | Room: E-130
Icons are the native language of software. Ironically, while software has been moving at a break-neck pace, the lexicon of our icons and the way we display them have been stuck in neutral. In an era of shrinking screens and a shrinking globe, icons will play an increasingly important role in our interfaces. This talk explores why icons are so vital in tomorrow's interfaces and how we should be thinking about them and making them differently.
