Make me pretty

By Emma Carter

According to research you’re going to spend 10% more time looking at my speaker profile than reading my Bio, which is a little bit creepy.

65% of the population are visual learners and more than 500 million people use Instagram daily to like photos, comment and post stories. Visual design is in our DNA and it impacts our overall product experience.

The rise of design sprints, MVP’s and simply getting an idea out there as fast as possible to test and gain feedback is great to validate an idea. The continuous delivery of products ensures we are always testing and constantly delivering better experiences to customers. However, the visual design of products and software is often seen as just adding the lipstick. Some delivery teams don’t even have time to go back over products and add the polish to create a better experience for customers, yet 65% of the population are visual learners.

How much impact does the visual aesthetics really have on the user behaviour and overall product experience?

During the 20 minutes, I will walk you though the impact visual aesthetics has on the user behaviour and overall product experience. How brands like Uber use visual elements to optimise pages. You will leave knowing more about how our brains work and process visual elements. How visual elements guide users attention and how brands are boosting their revenue by combining their brand and key user interface design. All of which is vital for any successful product.
