Information Experience Design (MA)


This year a coronavirus has brought the world together in a shared experience. More than ever information needs to be engaging. It has also become evident that who we look to for this information and how we want to receive it has changed. The structures of power are neither diverse nor creative enough to find the solutions that we immediately need. However, take strength knowing that another year of Information Experience Design students graduate with transdisciplinary and collaborative skills that are needed more than ever to help us navigate and make sense of this world.

Before Covid-19, this year’s graduates began working with themes of nature & sustainability; mental health; data & AI, infrastructure & space; future interaction & experience; philosophy & reality of magic and social & political concepts. These topics seem all the more important in light of changes brought about by the pandemic rather than less so.
