Inter­action Design

Interaction Design deals with how we interact with the world around us, focusing on experiences, digital products and services.

The ongoing revolution of technology has increased our need for new experiences, systems and products. Interaction designers aim to create the future that adds value to people’s lives by focusing on humans, their needs, behaviours and values, and also take into consideration the environment around us.

  • I wanted to study Interaction Design at an art school, not a university. There are only very few art schools in Europe that offer a Master’s in that field, and Estonia seemed to offer a great heritage in art as a country, so I decided on EAA. Thanks to the programme, I’ve gained a very solid foundation in design thinking, prototyping and project-based design execution. All of the projects are hands-on; there is a real product at the end, which is very satisfying. Although most of the projects happen in collaboration with industry partners, you can still deliver more abstract and conceptual work, and sometimes for the industry partners this is even more inspiring. The programme has helped me to structure my projects from ideation to the final product — in a team and on my own.
