-- a method of designers to interpret
E-binder is a prototype tool developed by Professor Jim Budd's
student to assist industrial designers quickly and easily present
a complete project or work in progress to others via the Internet.
The artifact selected in this design is a chair design.
The intent behind E-binder is twofold. First it allows the designer
to include documentation of the design process within a presentation
to help the audience attain a deeper understanding of the project.
The second but perhaps the most important aspect of E-binder is
that it is intended to solicit feedback from the audience and actively
engage them in the design process by providing an emotive context
for the project being presented.
E-binder allows the designer to easily include multimedia
generated by digital tools and so more accurately present subtle
formal and mechanical information. Navigation is simple and intuitive
due to a shallow hierarchical architecture.
The E-binder concept points the way towards a new
and more direct way for designers to involve other people in the
design process, whether they are other members of a design team
or end users. It is a digital interpretation method for the designers
to interpret their current designs to others, how about presenting
the ancient artifacts?
