Week 2 – User Centered Design


  • Lecture/Discussion
  • Project Discussion
  • Personal Goals

Notes from Nathan:

Core Skills of Design (from Designing Interactions)

  • Synthesize a solution from all relevant constraints
  • Frame (or reframe) the problem and objective
  • Create and envision alternatives
  • Select from those alternatives
  • Visualize and prototype solutions

We have to train our brains to analyze. Let’s start here:


  • What is this site about? How would you explain it to a friend?
  • Who do you think is its audience?
  • Observations on design, navigation
  • Suggestions for the designer
