ID2: User-Centric Design

In ID-2 students develop the skills introduced in ID-1 and Design Research Methods and deploy them in fully investigated and contextualized designs. Industrial Design 2 is the second in a series of six required design studios for ID majors and is typically taken the second semester in the program (sophomore year). Through 2-3 different projects throughout the semester, students will distill research and explore data visualization, contextualization, trends, user flow, ergonomics, and storyboarding, with a particular focus on user needs. They will learn to communicate their design concepts and user scenarios using 2D, 3D and 4D methods.
