Delighting those who use our designs is a tricky thing. We all want our audience to have a love at first sight experience. This often comes down to choosing the facial features (those key things your users see first) for your product. Getting this choice right often challenges conventional interaction design methods. This session will look at ways to design those key items for a great experience and killer "thumbnail equity."
As LUNAR's Director of User Interface Design, Gretchen Anderson designs products that are as pleasurable to use as they are powerful in expression. She seeks out those design challenges that ultimately make a positive impact on people's daily lives and environment. With a design philosophy rooted in the belief that a user interface should be seamless and invisible, she has designed a wide variety of products and experiences: from medical devices to casino entertainment to business productivity tools.
