From the get-go, humans have had a desire to understand
humor. And, as designers witness the growing value of
designing digital interactions and experiences that reflect
the interactions and experiences humans/users have in their
physical lives, the mission to understand humor gets real.
In order to design with humor, designers must understand it
in all of its dimensions--i.e., understand all the roles humor
can play throughout the user-centered design process. This
workshop provides an outline and a demonstration of how to
infuse humor throughout the stages of design, and teaches that
doing so can create a (fun) leaner process of research, design, and
development, not to mention inspire other surprise benefits.
