Interaction Design Fundamentals
No matter what your expertise within the field of HCI, your ability to conceptualize and communicate concepts and the rationale that led to those concepts is critical. In this course, the fundamentals of communication and interaction design, including layout, typography, color, sketching, storyboarding, and the use of images are presented. Students will become proficient with these skills, and will become comfortable engaging in studio critique, a critical discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of a given design. Course assignments will take the form of several short exercises, leading to a comprehensive screen design project that will comprise the second half of the course.
