In this subject students work as part of an interdisciplinary studio using their specialist design skills. They work with various design constraints on a range of briefs, both industry and speculative, with the intent of developing empathy for various stakeholders and the context within which a problem arises. The subject adheres to an expanded and interconnected understanding of interaction and service design that includes user experience, screen-based interactions, physical prototyping, narrative communication design, speculative thinking and ethnographic inspired research. Students in each studio need to be highly motivated and self-directed. Depending upon the studio focus, the skills developed involve a practical and speculative understanding of digital and physical touchpoints, combined with conceptual, strategic, entrepreneurial, system-focused approaches.
