Over the next few weeks, I’ll be posting articles drawn directly from my master’s thesis work in emotions and HCI… The articles will begin with an introduction to emotion itself, and explore how understanding emotions can contribute to both better designers and better products. I’ll attempt to communicate a broad understanding of emotions and design. The kind of understanding you can use to successfully apply emotional affect to your projects. Articles will include the ad graphic in the text and will be numbered. I hope you’ll find the topic as interesting as I have.
