What skills should students of interactive design learn?

May 18, 2023

Interactive design is the art of designing products, services and systems that are intuitive, user oriented and engaging. Interactive designers work on a wide range of projects including application development, website design and product design. Since it is an interdisciplinary field, interaction designers must have sound knowledge in design, user experience, programming and research skills. If you are planning to pursue a course in interaction design, here is a useful read on the key skills that you should focus on developing:

  1. Technical skills: Even though interactive designers do not necessarily need to be full-fledged software engineers, they should, however, have a clear understanding of the basics of programming and web development. As a student of interaction design course, you need to have a strong understanding of how to create, edit and integrate video, images and other elements into the designs. 
  2. Design fundamentals:  As a student pursuing interactive design, you are expected to have a clear understanding of different design elements such as layout, typography, colour theory, imagery and composition.
  3. Understanding user behaviour: In order to understand and create user-friendly designs, you have to possess sound knowledge about human needs, behaviours and the motivation behind using the products.
  4. Project management: Interactive design projects usually involve different teams of developers, researchers and designers. Hence, it requires strong project management skills to monitor and keep the project on track. You need to develop the right skills to manage deadlines, budget and scope while working closely with team members and stakeholders.
  5. Communication skills: Interactive designers need to be skilled in effective communication so as to present their ideas properly and get work done efficiently. Any kind of miscommunication can lead to ambiguity and cause misunderstanding or misjudgement of an idea or instruction. As a student, you must develop communication skills which include effective and clear writing, presentation skills and communication through elements of visual design. You need to learn how to use the right words and presentation methods to clearly express your ideas and thoughts.
  6. Critical thinking: To become a successful interactive designer, you need to have sharp critical thinking skills. With sharp critical skills, you can analyse problems from different perspectives before coming to an ideal solution. Critical thinking involves different aspects such as understanding the problem, looking into the cause and effects, evaluating information objectively without any biases and looking at possible outcomes.
  7. Adaptability: Interactive designers must update themselves and adapt to the rapidly changing digital landscape. As a student, you need to improve your adaptability and problem solving skills. Doing so will help you have a clear insight of the new and possible challenges. Problem solving skills are also important in collaboration and communication with colleagues and subordinates from diverse departments and backgrounds.
