We know our designs need to be impactful to our users. Not only that, they have to understand immediately what we want them to do, why, and how. The challenge becomes how do we grab and hold the attention of a potential user? How do we maximize the time a user will spend with us? Victor’s talk will highlight the role psychology plays in every day decision making and how product teams can incorporate specific principles of psychology to facilitate the adoption and use of their product. Come for the psychology, stay for the bad jokes.
