Shaping The Future Through Interaction Design

Design can help improve the user experience of a product, website or an app. At a time when the world is reeling under the COVID-19 pandemic, Design has an important role to play in building awareness as well as in bringing behavioural change. To talk about the difference that design can make in these difficult times, we have none other than Mr. Jay Dutta, the designer behind the Aarogya Setu app, gracing our webinar. It is an honour to have him on the panel, where he will discuss his journey and talk about the important considerations a designer should have while designing a product to create a large impact.
