Designing on the Z-Axis

No matter what screen size you’re designing for, multi-layered experiences are an important part of every designer’s toolbox. Flat may be trendy, but depth is where it’s at. The z-axis is a simple way to talk about designing up and down, creating interfaces out of layers that move independently of one another. We’ll look at innovative ways to combine layers and transitions to solve tricky UI problems, and discuss why it’s time for interaction design to embrace all three dimensions.
