Indeed, the interactive media designer is always in close collaboration with an interdisciplinary team (project manager, marketing, sociologist, engineer, users, etc.). In this context, his/her role is to ensure that the product design is in line with the objects of the user experience.

He must also be knowledgeable in human and behavioral sciences (psychology, sociology, cognitive sciences, ergonomics). His sense of observation and reflection are well developed. As well as his curiosity, creativity, rigor, and reactivity.
