Current place of employment:
The Austin Center for Design

Jon Kolko is an Associate Creative Director at frog design, and the Director of the Austin Center for Design. He has worked extensively in the professional world of interaction design, working around complicated technological constraints in order to best solve the problems of Fortune 500 clients. His work has extended into the worlds of consumer electronics, supply chain management, demand planning, and customer-relationship management, and he has worked with clients such as AT&T, HP, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Ford, IBM, Palm and other leaders of the Global 2000. The underlying theme of these problems and projects was the creation of a solution that was useful, usable, and desirable. His present research investigates the process of Design, with a focus on Design Synthesis and the creation of meaning. Kolko's present work is heavily influenced by his prior role as a Professor of Interaction and Industrial Design at the Savannah College of Art and Design, where he was instrumental in shaping the Interaction and Industrial Design programs. He presently sits on the Board of Directors for the Interaction Design Association (IxDA), and is the Editor-in-Chief of interactions magazine, published by the ACM. Kolko is the author of Thoughts on Interaction Design, published by Morgan Kaufmann, and the forthcoming text tentatively entitled Exposing the Magic of Design: A Practitioner's Guide to the Methods and Theory of Synthesis, to be published by Oxford University Press.

McCrickard, D. Scott, Atwood, Michael E., Curtis, Gayle, Harrison, Steve, Kolko, Jon, Stolterman, Erik A. and Wahid, Shahtab (2010): Artifacts in design: representation, ideation, and process. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2010 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2010. pp. 4445-4448.

Artifacts-representations that express properties or captured information-can serve to inspire, represent, and manage the decisions made throughout the design process. This workshop will explore how these artifacts are created, used, and reused during design projects, toward understanding the overall impact on the larger discipline of design. Through active engagement with novel design artifacts and methods, workshop participants will examine, categorize, and evaluate various design artifacts.

Schoenholz, Matt and Kolko, Jon (2009): Designing in the face of change: the elusive push toward emotionally resonate experiences. In New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia, 15 (2) pp. 211-220.

Designers are facing simultaneous and extremely meaningful shifts from artifact to experience, from styling to emotional resonance, and from the massive and faceless to the local and personal. These changes are not immediate, and are not complete; just as they didn't begin overnight, they will continue to evolve as culture continues to morph. These shifts, however, have already had -- and will continue to have -- unprecedented effects on the essence of business, commerce, and trade. Each of the shifts, taken individually, tells a compelling tale of opportunity and cultural change; when considered together, the three shifts paint a picture of a world where the human condition is empowered by the connections of design and business, and where the products, systems, and services that are bought and sold have a positive impact on society and culture. While these dramatic shifts are changing the very essence of industrialized business and culture, the industrial design process that is commonly taught and practiced hasn't similarly evolved. Thus, as the Fortune 500 and Global 2000 realize the need for cohesive ecosystem design and search for the "end-to-end product experience," design consultancies are struggling to deliver more complicated offerings in shorter timeframes. A new process -- a more fluid, responsible, and integrated design process -- is necessary to solve the business and cultural problems facing by today's designers. This new process implies a push away from artifact and toward insight, with great repercussions for the traditionally "physical" field of product design. This paper summarizes trends the authors have seen while working at a strategic level with major stakeholders of very large corporations. While the particular clients change and the nuances of the design problems are always different, we've seen these three shifts while dealing with clients in consumer electronics, enterprise hardware, telecommunications, and other assorted corporate disciplines. It is, therefore, helpful to understand our respective backgrounds in order to realize the point of view from which we write.

Tseng, Michael and Kolko, Jon (2005): TRIBA: a cable television retrieval & awareness system. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2005 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2005. pp. 1152-1153.

This paper discusses the design of a physical and digital system intended to allow for easy manipulation and interaction with the tremendous amount of options present in advanced multimedia devices, such as digital cable television. As user demand for access to large quantities of data increases, and cable companies offer more choices to their audiences, traditional content selection techniques become less useful and much more difficult to understand. TRIBA is the result of a ten week research and design exploration investigating how users can easily manipulate and comprehend tremendously large data sets. The findings of this research indicate a need for utilizing interactive agents to bridge the gap between the user and their goal. As technology is created and consumer electronics becomes more integrated into our lives, devices speak a language that users are expected to learn. TRIBA is a product embracing the philosophical idea that users should not have to learn a new language to interact with a futuristic and useful product, but instead products and devices must learn to speak the same language as the user.
