Great design manages to feel simple but also to embrace the complexity of the real world. Achieving this is difficult but deeply satisfying.
In a world where digital devices have spread from a digital elite to every corner of society, where users find themselves under increasing time pressure, and where the focus is shifting from desktop to mobile, designers need the tools to simplify experiences and to get their ideas accepted.
In this fast-paced hands-on workshop you’ll be set the challenge of simplifying everyday devices. You’ll see the surprising impact that simplifying user experiences can have on individuals and organisations. Through discussion, demonstration and your own ingenuity, you’ll learn practical techniques for creating experiences that are simple, effective and compelling.
