A Designers’ Guide To Empathy with Philipp Sackl
We spend more time in our browsers than in bed and more time with our smartphones than with our families. Computing and digital user interfaces are now woven into the fabric of everyday life. As designers, we are no longer just tampering with people’s productivity, we are handling the worlds most precious resource: attention.
This talk examines the challenges of building empathy with a global audience. It takes a critical look at how design decisions shape our everyday lives and at our role as mediators between the interests of users and businesses.
Philipp is the lead designer of Firefox at Mozilla. That means he spends a lot of time thinking about browsers so that you don’t have to. Prior to that, he’s been a co-founder of the design agency envis precisely and an interaction designer at the BMW Advanced Design studio. He enjoys good food, good beer and bad jokes.
