About this event

The profession of Design has always been about conveying information clearly, beautifully, empathetically, and joyfully. Recent technology advancements have allowed designers to find new methods to do this with their audiences that engage beyond the traditional visual methods. These include systems that use sound (voice-based), vibration (haptic), and immersive visual systems such as VR, AR, and MR (Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and Mixed Reality).

User Experience (UX) is a significant area of growth and opportunity in a field that is quickly adopting these technologies through agency-focused Design. We will look at some of the growth areas that include User Experience, agency-based storytelling, immersive realities and touch on some skill-sets in demand. One or more guests from these areas will join Scott in the conversation.

Scott Hutchinson is the Program Director of the Visual Arts at UCLA Extension overseeing design, studio, photography and art history programs.
