Designing Interactions for a Positive Experience

in Brainy Stuff,Visual Design

Interactions are an important part of website design because they engage the user at a deep level. The act of getting physically involved (even if it’s just a mouse click or gesture) can potentially improve cognitive performance. Evidence that the body is intricately tied up with the mind is showing up throughout cognitive research.

This presentation, given to the Society of News Design, touches on embodied cognition and then presents ways to create positive experiences for your users by understanding mental models.

Good information in your presentation.
BTW, the “Download .pdf version” link is broken.
