I have always been vocal about the integration of science & technology with arts, and I believe that design is the medium that will help us do that. I am Utsav Mahida and today I am going to share my experience as a student of IMA.
One of the more unique and interesting courses in the IMA course is the class called Digital Audio. This class takes the students into the world of audio design and editing, and introduces them to the tools and programs that are often used in the field.

A big part of learning how to create or improve art and designs is to be knowledgeable on the history and basic mechanics of art in general. This is where the Visual Communication course comes in, which ensures that we have a basic understanding of what art really is and how we communicate with it.
What it it?/ How it Works?
What is the Design thinking Process? Basically…it is a different way of thinking, many people have a tendency to look into style of a product rather than its practicality. Instead, design thinking is making practicality the priority and style as a very last step. A quote by Rikke Dam and Teo Siang states:
“By understanding the human needs involved, by re-framing the problem in human-centric ways, by creating many ideas in brainstorming sessions, and by adopting a hands-on approach in prototyping and testing. “
Are you tired of having to pay for individual Adobe Programs because of how expensive each application is? Do you ever think, “I wish there was a way to get more out of my money by just spending a bit more money for something bigger and better?” Well I have a solution for you! Adobe Creative Cloud. Adobe Creative Cloud is an application which everyone in the Interactive Media Arts program whether Interactive or Media all have and all need to purchase in the beginning of the program in the first semester. This application has all of your graphic designer, video editing, web design and many other needs along with mobile applications.
Who doesn’t love animated movies? I know I do. Animated movies were a big part of my childhood. My sister and I would sit around all day watching them. Being the younger sibling, I was usually forced to watch; The Little Mermaid and The Beauty and The Beast. I mean they are not great movies, but I wouldn’t say that I dislike them. That’s because after the 2nd time watching you had all the songs memorized.
While launching the first-ever iPhone in 2007 Steve Jobs told us that, “Who wants a stylus? We are going to use the best pointing device in the world. We are born with it and we have 10 of them. We are going to use our fingers.” This is the best example one can give for Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). An ever-evolving field of study, HCI is changing the way we interact with modern day computers at an escalating rate.
One of the first courses you will take when you start the Interactive Media Arts (IMA) program will be Digital Design, and to many this is considered the “Adobe Creative Cloud Beginner” class. One of the first things you’ll learn is that the class will be the teaching you all the basics of Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and After Effects. Thankfully, if you already have previous experience with some of the software, there are opportunities to take some projects further and expand your knowledge even more.
To me, art and design are all about expression and inspiration. It’s important to always be looking at new designs, even if they’re not your style. That’s what brings new ideas and makes great finished products. While there are many great designers out there, these are a few that I would recommend for inspiration.
The IMA program is a very comprehensive and fun course to take, I’ve been in the program for over half a year at this point and I’ve gone from knowing nothing about graphical and sound designing to video editing before I had even came here and from the courses here I’ve learned so much about them and I still continue to learn more and find new tricks to help me work on and do my assignments.
Since starting the Interactive Media Arts program, I found more interesting hobbies that I would like to expand on such as photography and audio stories. Before September, my skill level with computers was minimal at best, the only thing I used a computer was for Microsoft Word or very rarely for the odd video game.
