motion09 speaker Mark Coleran: Gridiron Flow

Recently, Gridiron Software officially launched Flow – a visual workflow manager. So why am I excited about this new app? First of all – because it is freakin’ cool. Originally designed as a workflow organization tool for motion graphics, once people got a glimpse of what this innovative application could do – everyone wanted to use it. Because of this, the app was revamped to include workflows for many more disciplines – from design and illustration, to web and video.

And the second reason I’m totally excited about this new app?

Because of Mark Coleran’s connection. Mark is a visual designer, known for his work on major motion pictures including The Bourne Ultimatum, The Island, Mission Impossible III, and Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Additionally, Mark is one the amazing creatives speaking at motion09 this fall in ABQ. Mark’s innovative way of looking at screen interfaces plays a huge role in the Flow interface design. And it shows.

Unobtrusive interfaces – it’s part of Mark’s mantra. And Flow excels in this arena. For many people, when they first install the application the “hardest” thing they have to learn – is the fact that they don’t have to do anything. Since most people are used to ‘traditional’ application interfaces, the concept of not having to do anything, takes a bit of . . . trust. Really, Flow will take care of itself.
