This holiday greeting was designed by Evan Roth, winner of the 2012 National Design Award for Interaction Design.
Evan Roth’s design is a visualization of every finger press required to communicate this greeting. The gestures come from the iPhone on which it was originally created and is part of a larger series that Roth has been working on over the last year called Multi-Touch Finger Paintings. Compositions are created by performing simple routine tasks on multi-touch handheld computing devices [ranging from unlocking the device to checking Twitter] with inked fingers. The series is a comment on computing and identity, but also creates an archive of this moment in history where we have started to manipulate pixels directly through gestures that we were unfamiliar with just over 5 years ago. In the end, the viewer is presented with a representation of the gestures that have been prescribed to us in the form of user interaction design.
