Event description

Description

Designing for mixed reality is a completely new experience for everyone involved, and takes some experimentation to get right. You won’t nail your first mixed reality project by relying solely on your previous mobile or web design expertise as a guide. Mixed reality requires a different kind of design thinking for its unique challenges. That starts with Envisioning.

This fast-paced, interactive, very hands-on workshop explores the approach, techniques, and mindshift needed to design truly breakthrough experiences for mixed reality (the seamless blending of digital content into the physical world in realistic and natural ways). Learn what’s so different about working with holograms, how to think spatially, and where to start designing your own holographic projects. You’ll move rapidly from initial concept to persuasive prototype – all without the need for expensive tools or a designer’s skillset.

Sign up today to quickly turn your ideas into a tangible example of innovative mixed reality design.

OUTCOMES

Participants will learn how to:

  • Come up with new ideas for breakthrough mixed reality experiences

  • Turn those ideas into working prototypes or demos using a variety of methods, such as narratives, storyboards, acting out, quick videos, and coding

  • Learn how to quickly evaluate the ideas with real people, then refine them

  • Gain experience using The Garage methodology known as “Fast Design” to move ideas forward
