Transitioning from 2D to 3D UX Design: 8 Translations


Keywords: AR/VR UX Design, 3D Interaction Design 

Part of Experience Dynamics' Mastering VR/AR User Experience Design series

3D or spatial interfaces are completely different to Web, Desktop or Mobile interfaces. This creates an assumption that 3D UX Design is so different, it requires a radically different skill set. In this webinar, we will show you that there is more in common with "2D" UX as with 3D UX. 

Transitioning from 2D to 3D interfaces is not as difficult as it appears. For example in UX design we talk about flows (interactions the user will take to transition through a funnel, process, state or sequence). In Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality these flows become narratives or Story Flow. 

Transitioning to 3D UI's starts with a mastery of 8 Interaction Design concepts that we will translate for you in this webinar.  


1. The new rules of 3D UX Design

2. 2D UX (Web, Desk, Mobile) vs. 3D UX Design (virtual or augmented environments)

3. 8 Interaction Design translations

4. Q&A

Who will benefit from this webinar: New to AR/VR UX Design; 3D or Holographic Interaction Designers; Content creators or anyone interested in UX and D design.

Others Who Attend Say...

“Seeing examples and best practices was great. Compared to other trainings I’ve attended, in this training I learned a lot! This training gave me a different perspective on how to think about UI’s. I really like the fact that the training showed the science behind the study and testing of usability”.
