Designing With Intention: The Paradox of Experience Design

A session at World IA Day NYC 2014

  • William Hermany

Saturday 15th February, 2014

11:15am to 12:00pm (EST)

...And there is a paradox. Like Marshall McLuhan says, we shape the tools and they shape us. When we shape our inner world it shapes the outer. Another way to look at it - we shape experiences, through IA, for others often without concern of our own experience along the way. I see it all the time with practitioners. And that can influence what is ultimately shared and experienced by all involved. As practitioners we have a wide array of tools and methods at our disposal. Often what we don't discuss is what we individually, whether professional or personally, need to help ourselves so that we can be stronger, more resilient and ready to help others.
