NEW DESIGNERS 2020 - DJCAD, UNIVERSITY OF DUNDEE: BSc (Hons) Digital Interaction Design & BSc (Hons) Product Design
Both the Digital Interaction Design & Product Design course share a philosophy that we involve people in our design to learn deeply from them. This could involve chatting to people with cerebral palsy, observing how fishermen in a boat handle their fishing equipment and involving students in creative workshops.
We design together with them in respond to their everyday life. Design for us is both process and practice. We craft objects, apps as well as websites that people would use and enjoy using – shaping, refining and detailing not just aesthetics but interaction, behaviour and information. Embodying our objects, websites and apps are technology.
We prototype iteratively using technology - which could range from materials to code - to test, play with and share ideas. We make working prototypes, allowing people to experience new experiences that respond to societal challenges and opportunities.
