This project captures the journey from the present concerns of interaction paradigms in Adobe creative tools to the experiential pitfalls of doing creative tasks.
Creatives are investing in tools to express their creative intent with tool language. 74% of creatives & artists reported such tasks as non-creative & tedious. With this concern, the project discovers that the tangible expression of creative intent is distilled with a form-filling paradigm, machine-centric actions, and difficult intent translation existing in tools. This way, the language gap has widened and blurred the line between creative intent and creative output.
Based on review studies & research, this project used the primary examples of creative tasks in a 2D digital illustration context. Be it for coloring, drawing, inspiration, and style variations, the project highlights the evolving need for expressiveness in the interaction paradigm. Such an interaction paradigm needs human inputs to foster creative tools as a 'natural' user interface.
The project envisions a shift in creative tools to respond to natural actions. To simplify the intent translation in natural actions, this project has anticipated the present & future aspects of multi-modal interactions through body movements, gestures, gaze, and voice interactions in digital illustration tasks.
