This fall, the MFA Interaction Design Department welcomes visiting lectures in an intimate twice-a-month series to inspire conversation, pursue change, and incite creation. Please join us to welcome Scott Thomas, Design Director for Obama for America:
Scott Thomas the former design director at Obama for America will discuss how interaction design made a huge difference in the past election. All too often, discussions of analytics, click through rates, and search engine optimization cloud the important truth that online campaigns and communities are for human beings. Come discover how superior design, technological collaboration, and authentic messaging, can truly change the world.
The MFA in Interaction Design program trains students to research, analyze, prototype, and design concepts in their business, social, and cultural contexts. It explores the strategic role of interaction design in shaping everyday life, and intends to increase the relevancy of design to business and to society so designers can make a difference.
