DESN3002: Experience and Service Design

This unit extends on student’s existing knowledge of the design process to provide a deep understanding of how to design complex, situated experiences and services. The unit is structured around a design brief that focuses on digitally enhanced services and interactive environments. Students develop an understanding of the range of design practices covered by the terms service design and user experience design, and how these relate to other areas of design. They learn about the influence of the user’s context on a designed product, service or system, and how to explore this effectively through design development and visualisation strategies. With a balance of individual and group work, students have an opportunity to collaboratively apply experience and service design methods to a design project.
