So, we all know college is a lot of work! Essays, research, late nights, early mornings, huge projects for design students… stress, stress, stress. The results it yields are amazing, though. Sometimes it can even be fun =)
Recently my Human Factors class was assigned a video project in order to demonstrate that we actually learned something this semester, and it was a success! I bet you’re wondering, “what the heck is this human factors you speak of?” Well, allow me to explain! Simply put, Human Factors is a professional elective class offered to design students at the U of A. This class addresses how the environments that we design really affect the people that we design them for. I would say this type of class is what sets a professional designer apart from a decorator. We are learning to be accountable for how our designs will be used, and how we can design the best possible space for the people that will eventually use it – the end users.
All of the groups were creative – we’re design students, what else can you expect? My group, which included 3 other young ladies in addition to myself, was assigned Housing – and we took a “MTV Cribs” spin on what we learned. Check out our Human Factors: Cribs Edition!
I hope you enjoyed it, and maybe you learned something. But most definitely, I hope you got a good laugh out of it!
Until next time, Ci Vediamo! See you later! =)
