Join us for the next in our series of lectures featuring speakers giving ten-minute talks.

This month’s topic:

“The Tablet”

Books. Magazines. Televisions. We hear these words, and understand well what shape their content will take. But “tablet?” “Digital magazine?” How does the size of the objects frame the user experience? Influence their portability or accessibility? How will the experience with these devices compare with other more “fuller-figured” media? How do we need to consider grid, typography, and behavior differently? Hear from four perspectives how telling stories in new spaces influences new experiences.

Matt Jacobs, Six Apart

Khoi Vinh, Design Director, NYTimes.com

ABOUT MFA IN INTERACTION DESIGN

The new MFA in Interaction Design is an inventive two-year program that requires students to intimately understand how design can affect human behavior, and to think more holistically about the products and services they’re creating. The program explores the strategic role of interaction design in shaping everyday life, and intends to increase the relevancy of design to business and society so designers can make a difference.
