Keynote 1: Ingredients for Exceptional Experiences
Marissa Louie, Principal Designer at Yahoo!

There are millions of web sites and apps that exist, yet only a few of them are accessed on a regular basis. How do we design products that keep users coming back for more? The answer is simple – we integrate emotion into our designs.

In this presentation, Marissa Louie, Principal Designer at Yahoo!, will teach us:

  • Emotional themes: What gets users hooked
  • Emotional toolbox: Design elements that make your users feel great
  • How to integrate positive emotions to influence behavior and increase user engagement 
  • How to add personality to a product

8:00-9:00PM

Keynote 2: Unlocking Emotion with Design
Kylie Tuosto, Senior Experience Designer at Intuit

UX design has finally taken its seat at the table, and our products are easier to use than ever. However, a gap has emerged between the people who build great products and the customers who use them. To close this gap, designers must build human relationships with their customers. By connecting on an emotional level, designers will enhance the impact the product has on their lives while moving closer to business objectives. 

In this talk, Kylie will cover:

  • Designing for emotion--what it is and where it came from
  • How to build meaningful connections with your users
  • Tips and tricks for unlocking emotion in day-to-day design work
