Interaction Design at Smart is all about simplicity - designing just one step when others need three and making every single click worth it. Interaction Designers research, concept, design, prototype and execute user interface designs that are engaging for users and fulfill the business and technology requirements of our client. Oh, and they know that when we say “users” what we really mean is “real people”.
