This happened is a series of events focusing on the stories behind interaction design. Having ideas is easier than making them happen. We delve into projects that exist today, how their concepts and production process can help inform future work.
Interaction design companies are often too closed off to the outside. We want to encourage people to be more open in their methods and ideas. We aim to have a mix of established practitioners, commercial companies and students. We want to encourage the perspectives from the other side of the fence, so will also be inviting curators and commissioners of work to give presentations.
This happened was started by Chris O'Shea (Pixelsumo), Joel Gethin Lewis (United Visual Artists) and Andreas Muller (Nanika). Each event will be curated by the trio to select a balance of speakers and topics related to the field.
The third This happened in London takes place on 4th March at Roxy Bar & Screen, with presentations from Jussi Ängeslevä, Schulze & Webb, Kenichi Okada and Snug & Outdoor. Full details and registration info...
