In ZJU we enrolled in 2 Design Courses – Design Fiction and Design Thinking. Design Fiction is a module where we are supposed to express our design through fiction. It allows us to better communicate our ideas to those who we want to introduce our product to. In this course, we learnt skills such as Adobe Premier Pro, After Effects, story boarding and acting. With these newfound skills, we have created amazing videos!
Our second module, Design Fiction, revolves around using a PLA Material which could bend under heat. We were tasked to create an interactive book using this material. This course has taught me plenty, such as finding inspiration for design ideas and rapid prototyping. Because of our tight timeline, our group has came up with over 20 iterations of our prototype within a week.
