Jeff JonasDesigning Emotional Interactions

Evan Hirsch

While technology trends and shifts have massively shifted our culture over the last 10+ years, it’s hard to overestimate the impact freemium apps have had on our culture, and how they forever have changed how people interact with, and consume information. Regardless if a message or app is scientific, financial or simply entertaining, consumers demand products be aware of “who” they are, what their “individual” needs are.  Success requires engagement in a meaningful way, every time by forming connections and emotional bonds with users not in days, but in seconds.  This talk will show how techniques pulled from filmmaking combined with free-to-play game design tools and a dash of psychology can be used to create successful and engaging end-to-end user experiences for any medium.
