Web and Mobile Design Workshop

event date: 
Friday, 5 July 2019 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

No equipment required. Suitable for kids aged 10 and above.

Every day, we interact with devices which allow us to do helpful, fun and important things – if we know how to use them. Who designs the buttons, words, shapes and sounds – the interfaces – which make apps and devices as easy to use as possible? And what’s that job like? At this session, we'll hear from Melbourne creative Sher Rill Ng, who works as an author and illustrator as well as a web and mobile designer. What's it like to work as a designer in the tech industry? How are apps designed? How do you test ideas out without building them? And how do you come up with designs that make complex things seem much simpler? In this hands-on workshop, Sher Rill will lead us through the process of designing a phone app using paper cut-outs – a technique used by many designers at the start of an interactive project. At the end of the hour, you’ll walk away with your very own design template – and an insight into the working world of web and mobile design, and the tech industry.
