Whether you have the title of “Interaction Designer” or not, if you are working in software products & services you are doing interaction design. This workshop teaches design groups, consultants and developers how to use the knowledge, processes, and frameworks that make up Interaction Design in order to create better solutions for business and end-users a like. From research through to final production of software and products.
The workshop will have students exploring the nature of design as a form of exploration, but doing so against the object of human behavior. Students will learn not just tools, but also frameworks and mindsets that allow for designers to achieve better results using the design processes they read about every day.
The goal of this workshop is to give people in the design role exercises to use everyday like they were working out their creativity like they would their physical muscles. Tasks like observation, pattern recognition, narrative creation, UI design, sketching, etc. are walked through in ways that you and your team back home can practice your craft as a designer and do it in an environment (like a gym) where you all get to succeed together.
