하하하. 그럼요. 힘이 들어간 웃음. 웃음에 힘이 들어가는 만남이라니… 왠만하면 피하고 싶었다. 결국 눈을 마주하고 이야기는 할 수 없었다. ‘그’에대해 질투하면서도 너에겐 미안했다. 아마 몇일인가 지나면 이 불안들은 조금씩 그를 미워하기 시작 할 것이고. 너도 조금은 미워할태지만.. 사실은 묻어둘 뿐이겠지.
Tools for Mobile GUI Designer & Developer
When, I was employed as a user experience designer by, The Mobile Middleware Development Company. I stayed up until three in the morning without sleeping in the company of new colleagues. The reason was that we should slice GUI designs to embed in LG Arena phone. Although they were simple tasks, it took too much time and I couldn’t accept why we had to work in this fashion because we were hired as designers also, the programmer spent too much time importing those images. However, in a few days past, I realised that a lot of people called designer and programmer work like this and are not appreciated for this kind of work. Therefore, I made a small plug-in for Photoshop. When it loads a piece of GUI image, it automatically slices the image and output GUI guideline. In addition, it also makes a file, which contains guideline information to be accepted directly by a company’s own GUI engine. As a result, a lot of people do not have to spend time on this work.
After I finished this plug-in, I also made an animation editor tool to design motion graphic user interface based on the exported file structure. So, we could slice GUI images and add a motion to those graphic elements. From this experience, I could take a solid sense that if digital media elements became limpid and less linear object to be controlled easily, It would improve our attitude to solve problem constructively.
Image Browsing Simulator.
When I worked for The Mobile Middleware Company, I had to suggest a different type of image browsing pattern. Although my graduation thesis was a visual communication design, I didn’t want to focus on graphic elements too much. At that time, I wanted to make a more functional and changeable work piece to show an image browsing pattern. Accordingly, I made a simulator which can be customised by a designer and open a possibility for my team. However, most of the designers in our team cannot program a computer language. Therefore, I had to divide several functions and make them controllable with GUI. For that reason, I set up several trigonometry, images, camera and camera target and then I linked them with GUI. Each result of the simulator records their parameters and efforts. Therefore an engineering team also can easily look at the history and refer back when creating each new pattern. Afterwards, It became a very useful tool for my work.
