Question: What is the key to really great design? What is required for us to understand each other better? Work together better?
A product or live performance, organizational structure or digital interface -- everything we design succeeds or fails in the experience of the user. To create with meaning is to do so with empathy.
In this workshop we will jump into experience design, focusing on developing a special understanding of your audience. Using Odyssey Works’ singular interview process, we will explore developing a space of curiosity and intimacy with your audience in order to have the deepest possible impact.
Workshop will be led by Odyssey Works' Assistant Director, Ayden LeRoux, and Artistic Director, Abraham Burickson.
Workshop attendees both create and receive a bespoke experience.
