// Controllers for grahic and other software.
Changing more than one parameter at a time is not possible with a mouse and a keyboard.
Control is a design study of how a controller for software such as Photoshop or InDesign could look like.
Working as a designer on a computer is unfortunalty quite an unexpressive way compared to the analog and manual way. One of the main reasons is the fact that you can change only one parameter at a time. Due to the input devices like a mouse we can only click on on spot at the screen activating or manipulating just one parameter.
Inspired by my experiences as a DJ and a VJ I designed a series of input devices for designers that would allow them work more intuitively and experimentaly. The simplest things such as changing in Photoshop the value of brightness and contrast at the same time can be such an effective and fun way to work.
The series consists of 6 devices for Applications like Photoshop, Camera Raw, InDesign, Illustrator and Sketchbook. But due to the fact that there are no labels next to the buttons they can be used with every thinkable and compatible Application.
To see the assignment of the buttons, an onscreen helper tool can be faded in at anytime.
