11:30 AM The Elusive Good Experience: Can You Really Design an Experience?

A common misperception of an Experience Designer is that we directly design an experience. Since an experience is an internal subjective state, we are really designing the potential for an experience. In this session, I'll show how human minds can make this job harder than we think due to the often unpredictable and irrational way humans perceive and remember their experiences. You'll learn to:
·         Recognize how these factors contribute to the overall experience
·         Leverage the quirks of the irrational mind to increase the potential for an experience
·         Create impact remembered by your customer
