M.Des Interaction Design

School of Design

Program Outline

Interaction Design is the design of interactive products and services in which a designer’s focus goes beyond the item in development to include the way users will interact with it. Thus, close scrutiny of users’ needs, limitations and contexts empowers designers to customize output to suit precise demands. The goal of interaction design is to create products that enable the user to achieve their objective(s) in the best way possible. Interaction design pays attention to five dimensions – words, images, space, time, and behaviour. The goal of an interaction designer is to create simplified experiences for users that require as little information as possible. Interaction design seeks to go beyond making something merely work well, but focuses instead on creating an experience for the user that feels intuitive, exciting and ultimately leaves them feeling like they’ve encountered something great.
