I thought my readers might enjoy a good read about user experience. Here is a very interesting article about user experience, from a phenomenologistic point of view, by Tom Guarriello, which might give you a a killer argument the next time your marketing manager burst into your office using the buzzword “user experience” every two sentences…
long story short: Designers design occasions for experiences; experiences themselves are personal.
More accurately, what the experience designer is doing is creating conditions that invite the participant to engage with the atmosphere from a particular perspective and therein experience this range of meaning. (This is what we mean when we talk about â€œsuspending disbeliefâ€ in the theatre or films).
hope this initiative of mine gives your experience of the day a little “plus”, whatever the context you are in :)
