What is Interaction Design?
Interaction Design is the deliberate planning of exchanges between users and interfaces. Interfaces can range from objects to systems or environments. Design examines more than problem solving — it requires preferences, choices, and observations in order to be successfully implemented. Interaction Design is human-centered and requires large amounts of research and prototyping in order to ensure useful and intuitive communication between users and products.
Interaction Design is not just a response to today’s modern needs — it is so engrained and integral to our lives that it can shape the direction in which our world will develop and sustain.
