Empathetic Design: Karen Faith

Using the case story of a massive health insurance provider’s bold move to redesign a health care brand, we will examine the ways that perspective-taking was put into action, from the research process to the customer experience design. Learn how to find actionable insight in the stories of your audiences, and generate effective, empathic solutions to product design and strategic communication problems alike.   

A deep dive into the practice of translating feeling into directives, this talk is sure to inspire product developers, experience designers, customer service experts, audience researchers, brand strategists, marketers, and anyone ready to take their empathic skill to the next level.
