M.Des. in Human Centered Design The vision of this program is to create designers who will empathetically explore and apply understanding of human behavior, context, and technology towards creation of digital products and services that enhance the users lives. They will not only, what David Kelly, IDEO says, “Have a dream that goes beyond what exists, rather than fixing what exists”, but also realize this dream. Human Centered Design is about keeping focus on “people” while creating products and services. It is about creating rich user experiences that aim at solving existing problems, creating delight for people and making products and services usable and useful. At Srishti Human Centered Design concentrates on Interaction Design and User Experience Design. We think about human-centered design as not just “user-driven” in its traditional sense, but more about “designing for emerging usages”. We foster a combination of creative Art & Design thinking, along with critical thinking of the Humanities to explore a human-centered design that not only produces great digital solutions, but also critically questions and explores future ways of interacting with digital technology and their implications. Human-Centered Design at Srishti not only covers the traditional reductive aspects of User-Centered Design & Human-Computer Interaction such as Historical Frameworks & models (e.g. cognitive psychology models, cooperative design, participatory design, contextual design) Design Elements (visibility, accessibility, legibility & language) Creative Design (Ideation & brainstorming, concept development) Analysis tools (persona, scenarios and use-cases, usability and experience evaluation) Evaluative tools...
