Meaningful UX

Designing for Meaningfulness means looking further than the immediate interactions with technology and focusing on purpose in life, relationships with others and with ourselves. This talk, aimed at a UX and digital experience audience, helps to expand on this narrative from the perspective of our online experiences and explores:

  • How people become participants and engage with products and services
  • Our fascination with screens
  • Non-Screen, Tangible Devices, what does this mean and what does it mean to product developers and designers, especially in a UX context
  • The role of craft in future smart products
  • The Mechanics of Meaningfulness – what should we consider when designing for meaningful experiences?
  • A set of questions for product developers and designers to consider when designing not just a product, but also an experience.

This talk can be customized to nearly any industry – here’s a testimonial from when it was presented to jewellery designers:

Thanks a million. Everyone loved it! It will be hard for the next speaker to follow!

I aim to misbehave

I challenge the status quo because I know there are more thoughtful and useful solutions. I aim to create ideal situations for creativity, networking, and knowledge sharing. I aim to work with people who are striving to surpass their wildest expectations.
