  1. How Contactless Technology Is Transforming the Consumer Experience

    January 10, 2022

    COVID-19 has shifted the manner in which we interact with each other and with our surroundings—in ways both large and small. The physical health of themselves and their families are the top concerns of consumers worldwide, and this shift in their thinking has accelerated the growth of the contactless economy. A recent report from Deloitte, “Contactless Economy: Are you prepared?” defines five drivers of the contactless economy that will persist far beyond the COVID-19 crisis:

    1. Hyper-awareness of health and safety
    2. Digitally enabled consumers’ maintaining a sense of normalcy
    3. 5G as the force multiplier
    4. The rise of the human-experience platforms

Instagram is toxic for teenage girls. Facebook is an angry place and makes the world an angrier place. Read More

  3. User Experience Is a Feeling

    October 6, 2014

    Many people seem to think of user experience as a controllable outcome of a design process—as though it were something at which you can throw minds, designers, and builders with the goal of understanding and manipulating a person’s experience of a product or service. In fact, user experience is often thought of as defining and managing a person’s experience of a product.

    But your product doesn’t define a user’s experience. That person’s own behavior, attitudes, and emotions do. Thus, user experience is a feeling. In reality, it’s even more than that, but if you start with the idea that user experience is a feeling, you’ve already made progress toward really understanding user experience. Read More
