Studio Inquiry

This studio asks you to create UX projects that explore Communication Design through different digital media. We will be developing communication design strategies for working with video and motion graphics, 3D and augmented reality experiences, combining them in engaging user experiences. You will champion some of your personal passions, creating rich experiences to inspire members of your creative community. 

  

Engagement

On being a Prototype Designer / We create mock-ups, prototypes of ideas to show how a design might work. At the same time we are exploring ideas, strategies and methods of how we might work as creative practitioners. Each of us a prototype designer, creating design prototypes. 

We will be asking what can we learn from the UX disciplines that surround Communication Design to more effectively communicate ideas through digital prototypes. We will be asking what Communication Design strategies we can apply to a variety of media used to deliver digital experiences. 

  

Communication of knowledge

We will share work-in-progress presentations and digital prototypes of your design outcomes. Key outcomes will be documented and shared online.  

  

Activities

Experiments and websites: There will be a series of design experiments in communicating through video, motion graphics, 3D, AR, and more. The experiments will workshop skills, strategies and methods that will inform your future design practice. These will be presented in the form of a website prototype. You will then apply that knowledge to prototype a website or app that will champion some of your personal passions, creating rich experiences to inspire members of your creative community.
