The Cupcake Effect: 6 trends in interaction design

November 8, 2012

This past October 25, I gave a presentation at the Infopresse UX conference. I outlined some emerging trends in ergonomy, user experience design and interaction design. Although there were dozens to choose from, I put forth the six trends that I find to be most interesting:

  • Polite design
  • Design for women
  • Responsive design
  • E-commerce website design
  • Emotionally-intelligent design
  • Wow! Factor

In order to better illustrate these concepts, I used cupcakes as a fun metaphor. Here is my presentation – with notes. If you wish to read a little further, check out my complete list of references on the last slide.

Bon appétit!
