What is this workshop?

This workshop focuses on the value of prototyping fast and often, regardless of previous design experience, and introduces different prototype fidelities, tips and tricks, and processes for planning and measuring the success of a prototype. We will demonstrate how to prototype at different scales, from interfaces to products, to entire services.

What will you learn? Why we prototype and the value of different prototyping techniques A framework to understand the prototyping process How to know what level of fidelity (low, mid, high) to use for a prototype Paper-prototyping for early-stage discovery and idea-generation How to use Marvel to rapidly create interactive prototypes How to use role-playing and video storytelling techniques to build empathy and communicate your idea How will you learn it? ...

What is this workshop?

Technology is changing our world faster than citizens, businesses and governments can respond, leading to uncertainty and increasingly negative outcomes. And, while organizations of all types, sizes, and maturities are struggling to adapt — rethinking their external customer/citizen value propositions while simultaneously reinventing themselves internally — traditional change management schemes based on hierarchical models are proving less and less effective.

Although ‘digital transformation’ has become the new solution buzz word, experts like Chris Skinner have pointed out that digital is about culture and people rather than technology. To bridge this gap, businesses, governments, and NGOs are finding an unlikely partner in design — building, buying or partnering not only to create cutting-edge products and services, design’s traditional role but to foster innovation and organizational transformation as well. ...

What is this workshop?

As designers, we solve problems for a diverse set of human needs to design meaningful experiences, which requires understanding many dimensions of diversity—such as gender, ethnicity, physical ability, socio-economic background, education, and more. This course will guide you through the process of experience design with a focus on designing for social impact while integrating solutions that are equitable and inclusive.

At its core, experience design is focused on creating a holistic solution with multiple touchpoints—sometimes digital and sometimes physical and sometimes systemic. Throughout this class, you will create a service concept and bring it to life through an experience focused on having a social impact. We will work hand-in-hand with the community we are looking to serve (yes, there will be field trips) and through this process, you will identify the key user needs from real users, prototype ideas solutions, and share back a story that inspires empathy and inclusivity....

What is People-Centered Research (PCR)?

People-centered research is a practice that refreshes the participant’s mind. It’s a humble and collaborative activity that helps designers stay more finely tuned to their surroundings and the beliefs and ideas of others. Design researchers are good listeners and synthesizers, who open themselves to knowledge and inspiration from unexpected sources.

At its core, people-centered research is about helping researchers draw inferences about what’s important: the essential elements of the user experience that can drive and inspire solution development. People-centered research is a chance to invite into the design process a set of views and perspectives that designers may have failed to anticipate by considering only their own experiences or values....

What is Service Design?

Services are made up of many touchpoints: printed materials, websites, face-to-face contact, physical objects and more. Designing service is a complicated task. In this one week workshop, we aim to provide participants with skills to understand user needs, come up with great service ideas, communicate these ideas well and finally prototype aspects of service with real users.

What will you learn?

THIS PROGRAM IS TAUGHT IN ENGLISH

The world of creation is constantly changing. Its disciplines merge and grow and the way they are implemented becomes more and more liberal. The multidisciplinary approach to design is part of a process where the fields in which creativity can be applied are mixed and matched. This is a form of hybrid learning, where students enter an open study plan with the aim of arousing their curiosity, developing their creativity and discovering the various forms of expression in design.

The summer course in Global Design seeks to explore the disciplines of product design, interior design, fashion design, and graphic design to make students understand that design can be based on a common methodology that is then applied to each different sector. Above all, the course focuses on expressing creativity and developing versatility and flexibility. This course is set against IED Barcelona’s multicultural backdrop, which seeks to foster knowledge beyond a specific field and to boost each student’s natural and shared skills, enabling them to learn about other specialties and the things they have in common....
