Description

Based on practical examples and exercises this course will impart the design principles for digital interfaces. Apart from websites we will also discuss and work on other interfaces like apps, automation, touchscreens, … The course content will develop by student projects in conjunction with discussions and single sessions.

Main topics of the course:

  • personas & user experience
  • navigation concept & information architecture
  • grid systems
  • responsive design
  • user testing and impact on design decisions
  • animation
  • prototyping (Sketch, flinto, InVision, Marvel)

Due to the fact that we will work together on your project it is possible to cover a broad range of design skills in digital media in a very short time.

Examination Modalities

It's all about getting really into the topic of interface design and UX. The flexibility, effort and creativity during the working process will be more important than the final outcome. You have to show up regularly to the weekly sessions, attendance at the two presentations during the semester is essential.

Comments

There is a follow-up to this course in the Sommersemester 2020. Based on this course, we will work on frontend development (HTML, CSS, JS)
