EXPERIENCE DESIGN PYRAMID This may seem a bit academic but for me it is pretty fundamental to remember when doing experience design. I put this checklist together to remind me why some experiences fail. Usually they are missing one or more parts of this experience design pyramid. Do all 6 and your experience is like magic!
idea, Re-design Project: after discussing "design," have the students choose an object that they feel needs to be "re-designed," and have them tackle aesthetics and function (even have fake customer peer critique role playing) until they submit a final draft drawing of the newly improved version of the product they re-designed.
