Adventures in IxD

The studio was framed as ‘Adventures in interaction design’ with the directive: ‘Design for cultural change and exchange, communication and information’.

Students chose from a range of themes addressing communication and culture: mobility and culture; food and culture; conversations and stories; water and/or energy visibility. Students applied Interaction Design (IxD) methods of user research, scenarios, prototyping and testing to create services and events that promoted or enabled more sustainable ways of living for the residents of Broadmeadows. The Broadmeadows project introduces innovative design for sustainability within the discipline of communication design, exposing students to potential design roles that contribute to social innovation.
