  • World of Webcraft (Media Design/Special Topic in Digital Media)
    Kurs Nr.: DM.M-MD
    Semester: SS 2021

    The popular Web Usability Expert Jakob Nielsen once came up with a User Experience Design law named after himself: The Jakob’s law. It states that you should design every website like other websites on the Internet, because the user spends most of the time on other websites. In contrast to this stagnant and myopic opinion, Liebermann Kiepe Reddemann sees the web as a young medium where established user experience conventions should be challenged, pushed forward and experimented with in order to find new and joyful ways to navigate and communicate through this rich interactive medium. In this course we want to develop joyful interactive web experiences that challenge the given conventions. You will learn how to successfully challenge usability guidelines in order to keep the web weird. Most of the time, however, it will be a hands-on online seminar. Based on our experience working closely with students, we will limit the course to 15 participants.
  • Always under construction (Media Design)
    Kurs Nr.: DM.M-MD/M-MA-2
    Semester: WS 2021/22

    In the early web the ’Always under construction sign’ was first a warning that the website might not work, but later became a promise that the page will grow and is taken care of and will be updated regularly, implicating a phenomane web designers are facing with every project: The fact that a website is never finished. Brick after Brick, layer after layer, <div> after <div> – the website you will design in this seminar will also be ’Always under construction’. It might grow by interacting, API’s might generate the websites content or an algorithm constantly changes its aesthetic. At the end of the semester you have built a dynamic website. Be aware: This is not a web development course. You will concept and design a website you will be able to build with your own skills. Anyways, a tent in the woods can be a nice as a mansion. The course format will be a hybrid of workshop and remote. The first session will be held remotely. We will introduce us, our work and what we do in the seminar. After that you can decide if you want to take part. Next meeting then we will be a several day workshop where we will come together and try to realize our ideas and start building the websites. After that we decide together how we proceed with the course. The course will be held by David Liebermann, Maximilian Kiepe and Jana Reddemann from the digital design studio Liebermann Kiepe Reddemann ([url][/url])
