New BDes(Hons) Interaction Design


Courtesy of the British Council I’ve been here in Split, Croatia for a week now — firstly for the Interaction Design Symposium held on 19-20th March at the Arts Academy, University of Split. This was a wonderful event and a chance to meet some great people, and to talk about Interaction Design in research and education.

Since Monday Marc Owens and I have been atelier leaders here on a 6-day Interaction Design workshop for Croatian students from the Universities of Split, Zadar, Rijeka and Zagreb. It’s very intense but we’re having loads of fun, and the students are working incredibly hard. (Especially considering we were all out clubbing until 3 O’clock this morning…)

Local organiser Ivica Mitrovic is an absolute legend and we all owe him a huge thank-you. Hvala, Ivica! :-)

It was a really intense but rewarding week, with a great bunch of people, and I still have very happy memories of the experience — not to mention looking forward to returning to Croatia’s beautiful Dalmation coast at some point.
