In 2016 I went to New York and while I was there I did an Interaction Design Course at School of Visual Arts NYC. In which, through a series of hands-on, studio-based exercises, I gained experience in critical parts of the design process while learning specific methods for human-centered concept exploration. The course culminated in a final project that incorporated the major principles of Interaction Design.
