UX - The New Brand Order

Published on

This was a talk given at UXFest in Boston, Oct 1, 2013.

UX: The New Brand Order

Customers remember experiences, not your logo. We will discuss the shift in user experience as the lead role in defining and expressing brand in a company. We will explore and demonstrate the economic relationship between brand and experience. We will also discuss the sometimes adversarial issues that come between those on the branding side and those on the user experience side. We will discuss case studies from the speaker's personal experience with Coca-Cola, American Airlines, Merrill Lynch and SeaChange International. We will then present a six step roadmap to achieve success in this New Brand Order.
