Emotion Driven Design


Published on

Are we getting the intended emotional response we set out to achieve? In this seminar, we explore the powerful effects of emotion-driven design on human behavior.

Our decisions are based off of 10% logic and 90% emotion. Reversal Theory helps us understand how we constantly change from being «goal focused» to «explorative» and how we need to design for both of these states of mind.

Through methods and examples, we gain a greater understanding for how we create engaging experiences and long term commitments by focusing on emotional design.
