Monologue on Delightful Design Presented by: Muki Regunathan 27 August 2014, The Leela, Gurgaon
To design, or not to design, that is not the question:Whether it is better in the marketTo design for survival, or for show? Cater to user empathy, or my ego? Do I need a long term vision, or create on the go?Is it to internal navigation, or external pressure that I bow?Where exactly is the design destination, who knows and how? For instance, who would have imagined a bare compass design Could reshape the course of history and throw open new opportunities to strike terror, or tender care in equal measure? To conquer, colonize and virtually unlock a whole new dimension in the way we see, interpret and utilize the collective genius Of a brave new world roaring to go to undiscovered boundaries where In the network of human, material and mind, There is yet so much more to find Puzzles the will and makes the creative endeavor, a testing ground forever. Design Monologue
Design navigation Design to survive or for show? Cater to user empathy or my ego? Do I need a long term vision or, Create on the go?Is it to internal navigation or external pressure that I bow?Where exactly is the design destination, who knows and how? Designed for survival Designed for communication Designed for guidance
Design: A currency you can bank upon? Form or function? Tradition or Breakthrough? Scale or stay niche, Design what sells or, sell what you design? Design today, sell tomorrow? Who can confidently say what’s the currency of design? * Yesterday Tomorrow? Today
Timeless design * Design is global. NY Subway Art is personal. Michelangelo's Sistine chapel Take you back in time You are living the design
Design hook What’s good design, does it conquer all? Adaptability, simplicity, accessibility, and relevance to audience most of all. Who ever imagined libraries would one day be without people or books, That they would hook you to your tablet from the remotest nooks?
Design: Original Purpose What’s the original purpose of your design and what’s it used for now? Do I deviate from the original, cash in on surprise and cause a row, Or, wait for critical mass, release a sequel and call it a Pro?
Design: Formal or Informal Should design be formal and fancy, or fresh and informal like it is trending today? Pictures were once so ceremonial but now they are so social, Do I follow the mundane or the iconic, who knows what’s the success tonic? Ceremony focus Selfie-centered
How design works? Delightful design doesn’t make the user think.
Focus Vs Busy Cleartrip Makemytrip
Design: Seamless Vs Obtrusive Good design often hides itself, but bad design shows. Should I design subtle, remain anonymous or reveal everything? User centric - FREE Has to be more user centric - Paid
Static Vs Dynamic No engagement Higher engagement
Conventions Vs Innovation Informative Convenient
Commodity Vs Experience Linear Magical experience
* Micheal Littman Brown University computer scientist Successful execution of the Internet of Things requires consideration of the interface's usability as well as the technology itself. These interfaces need to be not only more user friendly but also better integrated. "If users need to learn different interfaces for their vacuums, their locks, their sprinklers, their lights, and their coffeemakers, it’s tough to say that their lives have been made any easier." The Next Big Thing in Design: UX & UI for the Internet of THINGS
Delightful design Experience creation is collaborative not an individual contribution. It has to be simple, flexible, accessible and relevant. Delightful design = idea + people + process + technology Cannot design without understanding what technology can do: security, responsibility and impact has to be anticipated and addressed in design thinking Connecting people & product = what’s your design story?
