In 1999, I began work on a dynamic display concept that was eventually realized as Velocity, a configuration of communication pages for school age children available on the Enkidu Research Tablet Portable Impact. My initial goal was not to create a set of content pages, but to create a framework for holding content that was fast, expandable, and easy to learn and use. I wanted a better user interface.
In addition to the end product, Velocity’s development yielded a universally applicable design process for visually coding information within a dynamic display user interface. The goal of the visual design process is to create a visually consistent and informative user interface that is easy to learn and use.
