A designer's job doesn’t stop after the interface loads, it’sonly just begun. Part of being a formidable interactive designer is understanding the medium you are designing for, recognizing its weaknesses, and pushing its strengths. Static design tools will not get you there. Modern designers need to design in time as well as space if they want to engage their visitors. Jason will help you understand how you can evolve your skills using new interactive prototyping tools, discuss techniques, and show you why the future of engagement is anything but static.
