RESERVE MY SPOT

Back in 2008, Irene has founded the User Experience and Strategy department at Fantasy Interactive in New York, which recently she left in order to start up her own design studio.

Irene is extremely passionate about design and believe that great design is practical and human - centered at its core, and starts with breaking things down to its simplest form, the straightest line from A to B. Design can always be better, and rocking the boat is always the right thing to do.

On a typical project she is mainly responsible for translating business requirements into intuitive interactive solutions as well as developing and designing detailed wireframes that incorporate all technical, editorial, and usability specifications of the project while constantly advocating for the end- user. Frequently she’s heated debates with clients on how things can be done better.

She’s led the strategy and UX initiatives for USAToday.com, Wacom, Google, FOX.com, HTC.com, Verizon, BBC, EA, Nickelodeon, RedBull, Broadway.com, History Channel, and EA Sports. Some of those projects have been awarded FWAs, Webbys, Cannes Lions and European Design Awards, though most of those awards are in boxes collecting dust somewhere. When people who actually use these products take time out of their day to send us a thank you email, it really makes all the hard- work and long nights worth it, and she values that kind of feedback over any kind of industry award.

INTRODUCTION TO USER EXPERIENCE DESIGN (SCHEMATICS)

Products are no longer simply products; they live within complex business and technological ecosystems. To fully understand the user experience, designers must be highly flexible communicators, facilitators, mediators and thinkers.  Whether designing a dialysis machine, a mobile phone app, or a water filtration system for the developing world, design is as much about framing user experiences as it is about the creation of new artifacts. This course focuses on the relationships between objects and their contexts, how to identify human behaviors and needs, and how those behaviors and needs converge to create user experiences.

Students will be introduced to systems, user flows, sitemaps and other schematics within UX design and will learn when it is appropriate to use which.
