This course serves as an introduction to interaction design and prototyping for a web context. Students will undertake projects which cover planning and implementation of web-based projects with a focus on typography, narrative, and experimentation with an interactive screen-based medium. Core 1: Interaction revolves around a series of projects which are conceptualized, wireframed and implemented using both prototyping software and basic HTML, CSS, and Javascript. Students will learn how to design and develop complex interactive projects from initial brainstorming to comprehensive research and final execution. The class will consist of exercises and long-form projects which allow students to develop concepts, ideas, and strategies for web-based projects. The class will be supplemented by lectures, readings, student-led group discussions, and critical writing to reinforce core concepts. The course is complemented by Core 1: Typography. Students will be expected to apply lessons learned from type to their interaction assignments and vice versa in order to form a working method which will be explored further in Core 2: Typography & Interaction. Open to: Associates Degree in Communication Design majors only. Co-requisite: PACD 1100 Core 1: Typography.
