Hot Right Now
We’re delighted to, once again, present our annual reflection on the sociological and technological factors which are forming the road map of the digital age, and how they will affect our performance as creatives, designers and developers.
Hot Right Now was devised to enable us to collect exceptionally innovative and brilliant examples of digital design that we see on our platform and others during the year.
“Many of these animations, visual effects or interactions, are capable of predicting, or, who knows - even shaping the future with their inspiring influence! They almost provide a portal to another dimension, transporting us to a not so distant digital future”
This book contains themes such as the end of techno optimism, AI Ethics, Deepfakes, the science of persuasion, engineering and hacking humans, the IoT and 5G revolution, and much more.
Within the field of visuals and interaction, we analyze the influence of the 80s and 90s on trends in current web design. We also look back at the first interfaces, primitive video games and the graphic discoveries of the 90s Internet. We take a deeper look at the origin and influence of the current language of emoticons, emojis, memes and GIFs. The book also contains detailed chapters full of current examples, such as Color Exploration, Typographic Design, Reactive Cursors, and Enhanced Paragraphs.
