This class was a great experience. Being able to get to know Computer Science majors and their struggle was really interesting. We’re both always stressed, just a different kind of stress. Through our collaborative project, I was able to learn some new things as well teach some of the things Industrial Design students do every day (Photoshop, Indesign, Premiere Pro, etc.). Overall this class allowed me to experience what it’s like to work with those in a different field.
Our carpal tunnel project was the perfect project to see the different perspective of each of our team members, whether it be aesthetic, user journey and/or functionality. Each member brought something new to the table and we were able to work surprisingly well together from beginning to end (I’m lying, there were “dissagreements”). At first, we were a little slow in defining our problem, but once we started having deadlines we started killin’ it!
The only thing I would change about this experience is being able to learn a little more coding. Although my teammates taught me a few things here and there I would love to have some knowledge of the basics. With this knowledge, I would feel more confident to design and collaborate with people on the tech side of things in the future.
