This keynote was given by Marissa Louie, Principal Designer at Yahoo!
There are millions of web sites and apps that exist, yet only a few of them are accessed on a regular basis. How do we design products that keep users coming back for more? The answer is simple – we integrate emotion into our designs.
In this presentation, Marissa Louie will teach us:
Emotional themes: What gets users hooked
Emotional toolbox: Design elements that make your users feel great
How to integrate positive emotions to influence behavior and increase user engagement
How to add personality to a product
