Study UX / UI of the experience of reading news online, Jóse Navarro’s Final Master’s work.

In the present time, humanity has the widest access to the information that has ever been received, nevertheless each time is more frequent to hear voices from diverse areas of the knowledge, talk about the ‘age of disinformation’ or neologisms such as ‘Postruth’ and ‘infoxicación’. Setting aside objective facts to appeal to the emotions, beliefs or wishes of the public has been become the end of the media. This is a global issue and needs to be addressed from all disciplines that intervene in the act of communicating news.

One area that I find relevant is the interaction design, directly related to the emotional in the reception and assimilation of the news. It is a key role of digital design to
clarify the presentation of information in the midst of this chaos, both mediatic and communicative. This research project will focus on the particular experience of reading an online newspaper. Redesigning the interface and information architecture. The conclusions will be applied to an existing product, to show an end result.

Catàleg de patrimoni en perill, Júlia Valldolitx’s Final Master’s work.

This project aims to put together a heritage catalogue and prepare its publicity campaign within the context of social conflict. We will use the town of Prat de Llobregat as a case study but with the intention that this catalogue may be used in other locations with similar problems.

The main aim of this project is to give value to demolished, endangered or downgraded buildings while involving the local population in the process of creating this new catalogue. We want to use the materials created and its publicity campaign to give visibility to elements that have been excluded from an “official” catalogue, while also using it as a lobbying tool against public institutions which are insensitive to elements of historical and social value.
