What was the topic?

Lecture Link: Sound in Design

Who facilitated (the team in charge)

Started with a brief intro of the history, Heather walked us through the milestone of the sound in design. Next, Kendra showed lots of interesting examples of sound design in different brands. The Pepsi video was funny and inspiring : )

Later on, Eugina developed the concept of sound design with psychological proof. 

In the end: activity time!

What was the activity?​
  1. Form groups of three.

  2. Each group draws a number.

  3. Find a video clip of the corresponding number on Google classroom.

  4. Using the foley method and/or sound effects found online, overlay sounds onto a clip.

  5. Perform live with a video clip in front of the class.

  6. Class votes for the best sound group.​​

What was interesting?

  • It was great to go through so many inspiring examples of sound design.

  • The theory related to psychology was meaningful.

  • The activity was fun lol : )

What was helpful?
  • Embedding sound design in the walkthrough video about my products/services could help to create a more engaging watching experience.   

  • Instead of just focusing on visual design, the sound design could also play an important role in UX design! I hope I would include more sound in my future project and my thesis.

What (if anything) was applicable to your own project?​
  • I'll consider more sound design in my future project.

  • I'll watch more video to get inspiration about how to create a good video including both visual design and sound design 🤔
