NOVEMBER MEETING
Note: meeting is on Wednesday, Nov 8 this month again due to
library scheduling conflicts

This month’s topic:
Creating Pleasurable Interfaces

Usable interfaces are not enough. When everything looks good and
works well, the applications that stand out are the ones that
satisfy unmet – and often unarticulated – needs. But how do you
design workable interfaces that also account for intangible things
like emotions?

Stephen P. Anderson will discuss the new skills needed to create
desirable experiences, explaining why a task-based approach to
design is no longer enough.

To get a sense of where things are headed, this session surveys
the evolution of interface design, with comparisons to product
and environmental design. Learn what’s needed to incorporate
desirability and emotions into modern interfaces, and why an
engaging experience might be more satisfying than one that is
easy.
