Psychology Behind Emotional Design & Great UX

A good UX is delivered by software that makes the user feel focused and empowered rather than distracted and confused. Software that delivers that UX follows solid psychological principles. It would be really nice to have a demonstration of these principles as well as practical advice on how to apply them to web and app development.

    This was a great presentation! I'm trying to share some of these concepts with my co-workers, are the slides available anywhere?

    Lots of really engaged people, lots of questions. I enjoyed being challenged on things as well; it means people are paying attention and processing what's being said.

    The people were great, and good conversation. Some of the slides were a bit basic for UX designers, but probably good info for non designers. Great to have food and drinks too!

    Emotional design has become a powerful tool to creating great user experiences. A website must first be functional, usable and reliable. To create something truly unique and connect to your users in a memorable way, incorporate an emotional design strategy into your project.

    Emotional design has many benefits. In the digital world, creating connections that replicate human interactions form positive feedback loops. When a user has a positive experience, they are more likely to continue visiting the site and they will have an easier time remembering their experience. The other benefit is when people feel good about an experience they are more likely to tolerate minor difficulties on your site (like filling out a complex form) and they are more likely to forgive any shortcomings that may exist with your product or site. Join us as we discuss how emotional design facilitates a human to human connection in a digital world.
