Trouble Focusing and Balancing the White in Vinegar Hill!

Tuesday, January 30th, 2007

So here I am on this lovely but still cold evening. I decided on my way to school to take a walk down to DUMBO and Vinegar Hill - I love not too far. normally i ride my bike through there but since I had the camera it made more sense at the time. The sky was shifting between the blues and grey painting the scenery moment by moment. Throughout the journey I found it hard to white balance against the blistering grey and focus on specific element. So the is what I came up with. Hope to add more in the coming days:

Paper Prototyping:

So here’s the Paper Prototype for a digital Desk clock:

What I liked about this process, certainly not it’s tedious approach, is the fact that you have to move elements around and say out loud what each step means. i found myself having to correct, a form of quality control if you’d like. I chose the Desktop clock verses a web based interface, which would require much more outline time and user testing before any demonstration.

More thoughts will follow during and after class.
