What is Interactive Design & Media?

Digital technology has changed the way we visualize, conceptualize and express our ideas. Interactive Design is a fusion of multiple disciplines: computer science, graphic design and product design.

To succeed as an interactive designer in today’s workplace, you need a diverse combination of skills, including the understanding of basic design principles, the capacity to plan and develop a great strategy, the ability to harness the latest digital technologies and techniques, and experience in working in a collaborative interdisciplinary environment.
