Case study speaker
'How tiny words can make a big difference in user experience'
Every day, people interact with digital systems to perform all sorts of tasks. They buy groceries, watch movies, book a trip, or even play games. The user experience changes from system to system, but there’s always one consistent way people interact: language. It may be text on a screen or spoken commands, but words are always there. So, if words are one of the main ways people experience and interact at (digital) touchpoints, why are words still an afterthought in the design process? How can language and tone of voice help people make the best choices for them while using digital products and services?
Mario will share learnings on how the way we use words in our products and services can have a significant impact on both the user and the business. He will also showcase how gamification and conversational design help other organisations to communicate and create relationships that last longer than just one conversation.
