CT week 10 – Interactive Design

The  Purpose of doing this class and method is to help learning how we can interact with other  people such as customer as fast as possible. In class we were given a “GIFT” topic to practice interact and then we illustrate the data we got into phone application.

 

*** 2. How did testing and getting feedback impact your final design?

The testing and data i got is quite important in my opinion because  in order to design a final piece we always need a data we got from customers or what they want by approaching their interest. After that, getting feedback is always a must since it allow us to  build and maintain a communication with others.
