Parsons and Mozilla Labs collaboration

Aaron

This Spring, Mozilla Labs and MFA Design and Technology students from Parsons The New School for Design collaborated on a set of prototypes exploring engaging, multi-device Firefox UX for the future that aligns within Mozilla’s mission and goals. Led by Aaron Druck and David Ascher (Mozilla Labs) and Ryan Raffa (MFA DT), students addressed current issues with an eye to what comes next, from location-based experiences and augmented reality to social TV viewing and DIY maker communities.

The students detailed their entire process, from sketch to final prototype, on the class blog, Interactive Prototyping. Below are a final set of presentations and videos from each of the groups.

We at Mozilla are always interested in exploring ways to collaborate with other design schools. If you’re faculty at a design school and you’re interested in this kind of project, please get in touch with us at labspartners@mozilla.com.

Congratulations to the students on a successful set of prototypes!
