Content

In this unit, we explore the practices and techniques of designing user experiences. Emergent technologies have a profound impact on practices of reading, experiencing and consuming media. This unit addresses this dynamic situation introducing user experience design for human centred and agile environments, which leverage emergent technologies, consumer electronics and/or mobile devices. Learning about and utilising visual communication design, navigation, flow, information, semiotic hierarchy, and data will be negotiated through consultation, research and practical exercises. This unit is geared towards the production of strategies and design processes to capitalise on new developments. Here, we focus on understanding and implementing digital project management practices, wire framing, design patterns, visual design comps, whilst working with the Adobe Creative Suite.
