Interaction Design is an exciting field at the leading edge of technology innovation. Interaction designers aim to create experiences with products, services and environments which are not just useful and usable, but very often pleasurable, expressive and desirable

Innovative, considered and well-executed design adds value to products and services. Interaction designers seek to understand the people and situations they are designing for, and, drawing on their mastery of interactive technology and forms of interactivity, design artifacts and experiences to improve the situation. In this process, we extensively research, sketch, prototype and test to not just get the right design, but get the design right. Designers very often take the role as the advocate for the user, and are skilled in mediating the complex of issues and stakeholders involved in the design and production process.
