Discover how to design processes, services and environments that maximize the quality of the user experience. This course will give you an introduction to the emerging discipline of experience design. You'll learn how all sectors are looking for new ways to reach their audience. Practitioners who are able to work within interdisciplinary teams will lead this expanding trend.
Industries now demand a new type of professional designers who can engage all the senses of their audience. They must be able to integrate objects, text, sound, and images. Their job is to create meaningful experiences, events and installations.
You will be introduced to the analytical skills and strategies required for designing useful and positive experiences.
We will consider a range of public environments such as museums, shops or themed entertainment venues.
You will work collaboratively to conceive, develop and deliver immersive public experiences that engage and inform.
Projects will be realised in and around the heart of London.
You will learn new methods of research and how to interpret and incorporate your research into coherent projects.
To realise your projects you will be working collaboratively and draw from a range of disciplines.
