Hoppipop! Online Art, Design & Creativity Bootcamp aims to bridge the gap between the technical and the creative skills necessary to develop innovative, inclusive, accessible and engaging digital products.
Developing successful products requires the application of a wide set of specific skills, from UX Research and Design best practice, to the understanding of development systems and business models frameworks.
Art, in the broad sense of the word, helps you self-reflecting and connecting with the surrounding world, while building empathy with others. Art is about expressing yourself, finding your emotions to be universal to the human kind. Through the observation of human nature and behavior, environmental conditions and social contexts, you can develop a better understanding of human needs and emotions.
Understanding human physical and emotional needs is essential in creating valuable designs. You can develop a greater attention to details, key to reveal the core needs of the human heart and mind, while stripping reality of all the unnecessary frills.
Why did I start Hoppipop! Online Art, Design and Creativity Bootcamp?
Empathy and attention to detail are essential when designing digital or physical products for your users.
Finally, channeling your creativity through processes and collaboration, makes you understanding the value of an idea and its feasibility. Finding solutions to specific design problems might be frustrating, but by learning how to drive your creativity can lead your thoughts toward unexpected solutions.
Connecting the dots is not always easy, but learning to use divergent and convergent thinking will help use in generating and implementing ideas for specific contexts. Re-discovering traditional storytelling and art techniques to improve your digital expertise, from facilitating design sprints and UX workshops, to creating efficient User Interface for Augmented or Virtual Reality.
