Abstract

In this paper we present an approach to address interaction styles from the start of a design process
using video as the main design tool. We argue that video with its visual and auditory richness, its
dynamic and temporal character, and its narrative structure, is a natural medium for the exploration
and generation of interaction styles. As part of an honours track within our regular industrial design
bachelor program, some 25 students participated in a short module, in which they were introduced to
the concept of designing interaction styles. Consisting of four workshops of four hours each, the aim
of the module was to have the students experience how they could go through a design process starting
from the “how” rather than from the “what” or “why”. Throughout the module, video was consistently
used as the only means to document and present the results. Overall, the application of video turned
out to be insightful as well as critical. Through creating, reviewing and improving their videos,
students developed sensitivity for what is ‘wrong’ or ‘right’ when designing an interaction flow. Finetuning
this flow, however, proved to be quite difficult, having to master both video and audio editing
software to a considerable extent. Developing skills in preparing, shooting and processing video thus
turned out to be crucial, since these are required to get it ‘just right’. Currently we are therefore
looking into options to create an exploration toolkit that would make the alignment and manipulation
of video and audio more accessible.
