DOT DOT DOT: "The Interviewers"
The MFA Interaction Design Lecture Series

Join us for our second lecture in the series, featuring four speakers
giving four talks in forty minutes. This month’s topic:

“The Interviewers”
We often see the final result — whether it be a product, a feature
film, or a short story. But behind these strong finishes are strong
interviewers who conducted bodies of research to inform the outcomes
we now enjoy. Whether the fit and finishes of those interviews are
visible or not, these interviewers play a pivotal role in shaping the
final outcome. Learn from four practitioners how they ask the
questions to get the answers they need; how disparate and unexpected
research methods can inform the final outcome.

SPEAKERS
* Gary Hustwit, Director, Helvetica, Objectified
* Jason Severs, Principal Designer, frog design

ABOUT THE SERIES
The “Dot Dot Dot” Lecture Series is meant for broad explorations of
interaction design, business, and aesthetic inspiration. Practitioners
and thought leaders give short talks in an informal setting. Wisdom
will be revealed and methods will be shared in a environment intended
to satisfy both social and scholarly pursuits.

ABOUT MFA IN INTERACTION DESIGN
The MFA in Interaction Design program trains students to research,
analyze, prototype, and design concepts in their business, social, and
cultural contexts. Today, business success depends on the presence of
a well-designed, engaging experience, and the new MFA in Interaction
Design program explores the strategic role of interaction design in
shaping everyday life.
