MY WORK AT THIS PROJECT

Prêmio Jovem Pesquisador
During the first years of college, I joined the Dr. Hanns undergraduate research to learn more about interface design. The terms UI and UX were at the very begging back in 2006 and I was fascinated by the whole universe called "user centered design". The first paper I wrote "The concept of interface in the contexto of design" was presented at the CONGIC Conference, at Curitiba (Paraná, Brazil). I was pleased to earn an award for it.
The aim of this article is to explain the concept of interface in the context of design, through a brief discussion of interface’s definitions as well as understanding the true functions of design nowadays. The aim is also to clarify why some interface concepts are not suitable for design studies.
