Design for Real Life

A presentation at Web Design Day 2016 in in Pittsburgh, PA, USA by Eric A. Meyer

As more and more of our lives become represented online, and more and more of our lives are touched by digital creations, the need to design thoughtfully and compassionately is growing--and often woefully overlooked. You can’t always predict who will use your designs, or what emotional state they’ll be in when they do, but by refocusing to identify stress cases and design with compassion, you can create experiences that will support more of your users, more of the time, and avoid doing unintended harm.
