I've used Apple's Keynote application for mocking up UI while working at Apple, Netflix and Nest. I use Keynote 95% percent of the time and use Photoshop and Illustrator on occasion but only for specific tasks. Keynote is an incredibly efficient tool for mocking up user interfaces for web and mobile applications and allows you to wireframe, create high fidelity designs, mockup interactions, create visual specs, simulate animations, and present all from one tool. I'll be walking through some of the workflows that I use in Keynote, show tips and tricks, talk about best practices, do a quick demo and answer lots and lots of questions.
Designing UI in Keynote for Web & Mobile Apps
Please have the following prepared before the workshop:
Ted started his design career at Duarte Design with Apple as his main client. He also worked one-on-one with Al Gore, to create the compelling and impactful slides that were the basis for the Academy Award winning film, An Inconvenient Truth. After Duarte, he spent 5 years at Apple as the lead UI designer for Keynote on the iPad, iPhone and desktop and then spent a little under 2 years at Netflix as Lead Designer for mobile. He is currently a Senior Designer at Nest.
Ted studied Industrial Design, and still enjoys product design and building things in his spare time. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and depending on what day it is you might find him surfing in Santa Cruz or enjoying food in San Francisco.
Ted is an evangelist and promotor of Keynote as a tool for User Interface designers and spoke on the subject at SXSW 2013, the Acadamy of Art in SF, and for the Design Team at Spotify.
If you would like to have me come speak about designing user interface in Keynote or give a workshop to your design team, feel free to get in contact.
