Emotional design

Today's presentation was the last one within the class. This was very interesting, and I think in many ways, it could relate to everybody considering we are all on the same boat, having to do our final year project. I really enjoyed the class activity of (eye bombing). This is were you try and find the character within an object, by sticking eyes on it.


The group highlighted professions within Interaction design that look at this as an important approach to designing, like Don Norman, who talks about these design elements. I felt that from this presentation, it helped to understand that within every design, we could possibility think along these terms of finding the character within, to make objects more fun and exciting to look at and use. Good work guys.
