Event description
In this FREE workshop, try out the role of Interaction / UX Designer -- hands on, in a friendly, open, diverse and inclusive environment

About this Event

So, what does a Interaction / UX Designer actually do?

"Interaction design is the design of the interaction between users and products. Most often the products tend to be software products like apps or websites. The goal of interaction design is to create products that enable the user to achieve their objectives in the best way possible.

If this definition sounds broad, that’s because the field is rather broad: the interaction between a user and a product often involves elements like aesthetics, motion, sound, space, and many more. And of course, each of these elements can involve even more specialised fields, like sound design for the crafting of sounds used in user interactions." [paraphrased from The Interaction Design Foundation]
