As a creative web designer, you will probably jobless in the near future; because variety of web layouts, iconography and interactivity has already invented and tested within the past 20 years. You may only experiment new graphic styles; but not more then that… Regardless, your boss, your customers or the users still demand on your innovations to be impressed, but it isn’t so easy as before.
I´m currently studying Digital Media at the international school of Hyper Island in Stockholm, Sweden.
Me and some fellow students feels very passionate about interaction design but are missing it in the schools curriculum, and we are now starting up something what can only be described as the Dead Poets Society, but for interaction design.
Interaction design education in progress at ‘see’ (Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee | School of Art, Product Design Dept.). A project blog for student's work-in-progress, generously sprinkled with diverse topic-related snippets and resources.
I will be teaching an Interaction Design course this summer. I want to make sure my students will get practical, up to date and actionable skills they can take out to the world after they graduate so, my intention is to have them work on as many portfolio projects as time allows and work together on small teams. So I can give them the broadest view I wanted to get some feedback from the community on:
I am so happy I found this place and believe that I will finally find
answers to my zillions of questions ;)
