Immersive Content and Usability

From stone tablets to paper pages to backlit screens, humans have always created and shaped content to fit the containers available to us. But increasingly, the lines between our physical and digital surroundings are blurring—and we need to design usable and accessible content for an ever-expanding array of contexts.

Preston So guides designers, content strategists, and engineers on a journey through the emerging realm of immersive content design. Learn to create incisive and inclusive user-centered experiences across augmented, extended, and virtual realities, transforming the physical world into an exciting new canvas for content.
