How can we design better experiences? Experience Design brings together leading international scholars to provide a cross-section of critical thinking and professional practice within this emerging field. Contributors writing from theoretical, empirical and applied design perspectives address the meaning of ‘experience’; draw on case studies to explore ways in which specific ‘experiences’ can be designed; examine which methodologies and practices are employed in this process; and consider how experience design interrelates with other academic and professional disciplines.

Chapters are grouped into thematic sections addressing positions, objectives and environments, and interactions and performances, with individual case studies addressing a wide range of experiences, including urban spaces, the hospital patient, museum visitors, mobile phone users, and music festival and restaurant goers.
