Designing Meaningful Experiences

Designers and usability practitioners take various approaches to understanding the user experience, including following established heuristics (Jakob Nielsen), looking at UX as being made up of various elements of equal importance (Peter Morville’s “User Experience Honeycomb”), or via a hierarchical or pyramid approach in which more subjective “higher level” goals of the user take precedence over simple objective measures of “usability” or basic functional aspects.

David Kozatch argues for the latter approach, which recognizes that significant changes in online technology require the need to recognize a more complex understanding of how to effectively deliver on the user experience. At the top of this pyramid is the user’s need for meaningful experiences. The goal of this presentation is to demonstrate the importance of designing for meaning and provide practitioners with a framework for understanding the elements of meaningful experience.
