Work on display: Digital Interaction Design
We live in an increasingly digital world, one which raises profound questions around security, exclusion, the environment and physical and mental health. Designers working in the digital space must therefore imagine ways to tackle some of the biggest challenges of our time.
The Digital Interaction Design course aims to empower students to bring people, technology, design and place together to produce high-quality work they are passionate about. In addition to the academic programme, we have connections with major players in the tech world and our students benefit from hearing from a variety of industry voices, including high achieving alumni whose success provides the current crop with inspiration.
The final year of the course is when students become completely self-directed and see a project through from setting their own brief to realising a finished product based on their learning across their time with us. As their designs prove, this year’s graduands have done a fantastic job of responding to big societal issues.
Inclusion was a major theme across our students’ work this year. They explored ways of helping people who aren’t always able to access the latest technology and created bespoke solutions around difficulties arising from medical conditions or personal circumstances.
Our students created shared social experiences through design, encouraged people to interact with each other as well as technology and enabled individuals to feel safe online. At all times, people, and their individual needs, were to the forefront of the process.
