#sxsw #keynoteui

Keynote is an incredibly efficient tool for designing user interfaces for web and mobile applications and allows you to wireframe, create high fidelity designs, mockup interactions, create visual specs, simulate animations, create interactive prototypes and present all from one tool. In this two and a half hour long workshop, I'll be walking through some of the workflows that I use in Keynote, show tips and tricks, talk about best practices, do a quick demo and answer lots and lots of questions.

Some takeaways of the workshop include:
• Why to use Keynote
• When to use Keynote and when to use Photoshop and Illustrator
• Complete overview of Keynote (Toolbar, Setup, Inspectors, Masters, Drawing Tools, Animations, etc.)
• Top 10 Hints/Tricks in Keynote
• Attendees will complete a mockup exercise during the workshop
• Time for Q&A

We will be using Keynote 09 (not Keynote 13). No worries if you upgraded. Keynote 09 is still in the iWork '09 folder.

- Keynote 09 (We will not be using Keynote 13, this release has limited features) should be installed on the attendees computer and they should have a basic understanding of the application.

What to Bring:
- An Apple laptop with Apple's Keynote 09 installed. http://www.apple.com/iwork/keynote/
- Pen and paper are also recommended.



Ted Boda

Sr Designer


Ted started his design career at Duarte Design with Apple as his main client. He also worked one-on-one with Al Gore, to create the compelling and impactful slides that were the basis for the Academy Award winning film, An Inconvenient Truth. After Duarte, he spent 5 years at Apple as the lead UI designer for Keynote on the iPad, iPhone and desktop and then spent a little under 2 years at Netflix as Lead Designer for mobile. He is currently a Senior Designer at Nest Labs.

Ted studied Industrial Design, and still enjoys product design and building things in his spare time. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and depending on what day it is you might find him surfing in Santa Cruz or enjoying food in San Francisco.

Ted is an evangelist and promotor of Keynote as a tool for User Interface designers and spoke on the subject at SXSW 2013, the Acadamy of Art in SF, and for the Design Team at Spotify.
