LCC Futures Lecture: Designing for Mobile

For the second time since the London College of Communication (University of the Arts, London) has been running the LCC Futures Conference, Ané-Mari Peter, an alumni of the LCC, was invited to lecture.

The conference is run by the Digital Media and Games Design courses under the guidance of Chris Linford and Godfrey Lee and attended by final year students. Speakers range from academia, games companies, communications agengies, cross media companies, publishers and many others, who aim to not only inspire but provide concrete advice on working in the industry.

Ané's lecture focused on 'Design for Mobile' as not only a mega trend, but a realistic opportunity for young designers and developers to change the way in which content is accessed and engaged with. Talking through a number of on-IDLE client case studies a practical overview outlines the challenges and unforseen problems thrown up by different screen resolutions not only in terms of the technology in itself, but implementing design solutions.

Key takeaway:

Learn the language of touch.
