Event description

Description

We are now in the X-era: the era of experience. There is growing awareness of the economic benefits that innovative experience design can bring to nations and organisations. The innovation can redefine the meaning, value and functionality of physical products and systems. It can transform them into highly integrated service systems able to enhance the sustainability and humaneness of our social and economic environments, while offering businesses a competitive edge. This lecture will first introduce experience design as a cross-cultural, cross-disciplinary area. It will then discuss the development of experience design in its past, present and future. It will finally conclude with implications for designers on how they can best equip themselves with knowledge and skills in experience design, for their scholarly and professional development.
