Definition (min 1 paragraph) in your own words.
To me, interactive design is known to being a very simple and useful concept that designers confide in to reveal the importance in its components within users and products. From everything from a simple button to a link to a form field is part of interactive design. There are many facets of these particular designers that have evolved over the decades, that there is always an expectation to be able to perform some form. The main goal of interaction design in the end is to create products that enable and facilitate the user to achieve their objective in the best way possible.
Examples (min 3 precedents with screen grabs and explanation).
Mini Cooper is a website for a branded European car, which shows the model Mini Hatch in a very creative and user friendly way, through the use of kicking various buttons to your own desire to reach to a point of personal preference. In terms of the website and how it has been designed, is quite sophisticated that presents the way how they have advertised the Mini Hatch, through the use of colour and photography. Also, it allows users to pick and choose a complete design of how they would like their very own Mini Cooper to be like. To gain that very experience and interaction as it enables them to either click on various buttons to be taken to a desired option or even to test drive what they have created themselves.
