Digital Experience Group

Supporting Research at UConn Through Digital Innovation.

With its multidisciplinary team composed of Digital Media & Design faculty members Brian Daley, Joel Salisbury, and Michael Vertefeuille, and assistance from staff, graduate students, and paid interns, the DX Group offers collective decades of experience in web design, UI / UX design, application development, and technological innovation.

As a sibling of the UConn DMD Digital Experience Lab, a research lab homed by the Digital Media & Design Department, we utilize the latest research, and emerging thought leadership in UX Design, App Development, and Digital Product Design.

The DX Group uses an Agile approach during the concept, prototype and full-scale deployment phases of app development. Since this methodology mirrors that of industry leaders, the DX Group can adapt to new challenges. All of the DX Group’s services emphasize the most basic principle they teach their students: to utilize the newest and most cutting-edge approaches to digital design.
