Today's customers no longer forgive poorly designed experiences in exchange for cool technological innovations. Today's customers demand intuitive and useful experiences. Design has become the great differentiator in today's crowded marketplace of products, services, and messages.
In order to serve customer's needs, wants and desires in a complex, interconnected world, today's designer must go beyond defining themselves solely as a "website designer" or a "print designer". Today's designers must think about the interrelationship of experiences that live in the real and digital world. How can design and technology enable people to have deeper and more meaningful experiences with products and services? Find out how in this hands-on, 3-day intensive, experience design workshop where we will use a real-world project to learn research, strategy, and design techniques that lead to a multi-touchpoint digital strategy. Real world deliverables are shared and discussed, and all class files are available for download on the class Basecamp site.
