Design Police Report 5 Web Design Crimes

In this tutorial series, I get to be a police officer and report on crimes in user interface design. 

This tutorial series is from the collection of over 100 video tutorials for web designers that I created for MediaBistro and Create Magazine. Each tutorial series consisted of four videos: an introduction and three instructional videos. I taught graphic design principles and good web design practices to an audience that included those who may not have had a design education or professional experience in web design.

I have re-edited these movies for inclusion here in my portfolio. Voice-over, Premiere, audio and visual editing.

I have created online videos and interactive teaching interfaces for most of my career as a designer. One of the biggest e-learning projects I worked on was the Hummer multimedia repair manual for the Army. I designed and programmed the interface, and then headed up a team of designers to create the interactive movies. The manual included text, video, voice-overs, graphics and sound in two languages inside an interactive interface. The final project included hundreds of files and movies. We achieved this herculean feat in less than 6 months.
