Interaction design is the design of the interaction between people and devices, systems or services. This interaction usually involves the ‘new technologies’ of computing and communications. But interaction design remains a creative activity – like architectural, graphic or product design. And it concerns the social value and cultural meaning of what is designed, as well as its functional efficiency and aesthetic appeal.
This site, run by Gillian Crampton Smith and Philip Tabor, mostly concerns their Interaction Design (IxD) programme in the Visual and Multimedia Communication track (clasVEM) of the Graduate Programme in Design at Iuav University of Venice, Italy, between 2006 and 2013.
