Description

Experience is overrated. Memory is what really matters in today’s digital economy. Designing “digital experiences” is common now; we know that top sites and apps are “immersive” and “interactive". But does it matter in the end if your users walk away without a positive memory?

Listen to classic psychology studies and theory to learn how humans convert experiences into memories in irrational but systematic ways. Find out how to use this understanding to focus less on your users’ ephemeral perceptions and more on what motivates their decisions in the longer term.

This session is for anyone who wants to see Curt Arledge talk through examples, quotes, and stories and learn how to be a better user memory designer.
