Interaction Design Pilot Year Churns Out Great Student Projects

Posted to Visualization  |  Nathan Yau

In a collaborative initiative between Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design and The Danish Design School, the Interaction Design Pilot Year brings together students and faculty from various disciplines for a unique brand of education.

The Interaction Design Pilot Year is a full-time intense curriculum that includes a number of skills-based modules (such as video prototyping and computational design), followed by in-depth investigations in to graphical/tangible interfaces and service design.

The end result? A lot of great work from some talented and motivated students. There are a number of project modules, but naturally, I’m most drawn to the interactive data visualization projects. Here are a few of the projects.

Find much more in the student gallery.
