LM122 Creative Media & Interaction Design At A Glance
Technologies have become a huge part of daily life. These technologies need to be accessible and easy to use. Creative Media and Interaction Design is a human centred approach to computing technologies that mixes technology and art. It connects to many different things from app design to sound engineering to improving societal issues through design. All these areas are growing in size in today’s world.
Interaction design is the creation of a useful and satisfactory relationship between a user of a product and the product itself. A product should hold the interest of the user, be easy to use and accessible to all. This holds true for all designs be it a mobile application, a physical object or an instrument. For example, the set of steps taken to open a messaging app and send a message should be a process that is designed to be completed without much thought. When well designed, the use of an object is intuitive.
