    CORANTE PAULA THORNTON says, "Understanding human behavior (economics), optimizing interactions (design) and facilitating conversations (markets), are the means to achieve strategic differentiation. This is the focus of our discipline. It is not a 'nice to have'‚ and is not, like documentation once was, an afterthought. It is the means by which to start a strategic discussion and the means by which to drive a tactical initiative. All design should be evidence-based."

    David Armano's “Experience Map”

    Email This Entry

    Posted by Bob Jacobson

    Experience MapDAVID ARMANO, creative lead at agency Digitas, in Chicago, has published a pretty neat “experience map” on his blog, Logic + Emotion. A work in progress, it's visually stimulating, and conceptually as well as practically interesting. However, I'm waiting for David to extend the map's concepts off the Web page and into the material and experiential world. The map's downloadable. Your comments are welcome (we'll share them with David).

    Bob,

    Thanks for the reference of the Experience Map. It's been making it's way across the blogosphere with some help from you. I recently contributed a post to the Marketing Profs Daily Fix blog which covers some similar ground. And yes, it includes a visual (T-Shaped Creativity).

    http://blog.marketingprofs.com/2006/05/tshaped_creativity.html

    As you can see, my efforts are focused at the intersection of Interactive Marketing and Experience Design/Brand Experience

    Thanks again and keep up the great work here.

    -David

    David, you're welcome. It'll be good to see you grow this map over time and with...experience!

    A tiny thing, but when David says "the experience brief lies the foundation", does he mean that the experience brief "lays the foundation"?

    Thanks for including the "Experience Map" on your blog. It is very well thought out and easy to understand. I've never really thought about all the logic and emotion that goes into creating and branding something.
