Content

In this unit we extend on the foundations of User Experience and Interaction Design to develop evidence-based interactions between humans and computers. Working with industry led design briefs and wicked problems, we explore innovative practical and theoretical UX and ID methods to develop immersive, playable digital experiences. Creating visual designs, through wire framing, visual prototyping, brand perception and user testing we develop interactive systems using inclusive practices to craft and guide users and target audiences to interact with digital products in meaningful and productive ways.
