Open Source Publishing – Graphic Design Caravan

Use Cases and Affordances

News · December 15th, 2010 ·

Enjoying the first issue of Libre Graphics Magazine First Flight too? In the mean time, the editorial team started working on a brand new one! The theme for the upcoming magazine is Use Cases and Affordances:

Our software tools, in their affordances and potential use cases, define for us, to a certain extent, what we may and may not do. Those decisions are put in place by the people who design the tools. Together, as users, developers and all areas between the two extremes, we boil in a constantly reconfiguring sea of use possibilities, material and mental affordances.

Interesting 🙂

    If you’re in North America and ordered before December 13, it’s already been sent. If you’re in Europe, it should be mailing out (from Porto, Portugal) early next week. New orders are being mailed as they come in.

    Beautiful and promising.
    Rien que le mot “affordances”, qui en français se dit “affordances”, aussi.
