Delightful Microinteractions

 

I saw Dan Safer talk at UX Australia last week and his talk on Microinteractions really inspired me. Adding little moments into features and interactions is something I have always tried to do in my designs but the way he highlighted it and gave examples of how important they are to a product, made me want to find more ways we can surprise and delight users.

 

Making digital experiences more personable by speaking to users in a more humanistic tone, indicating what a certain action is going to lead to rather than relying on error messages as well as learning how people use an interface and adapting to that are all little things that can help people have a better connection with our products.

 

Although not as good as seeing Dan express the awesomeness of personable microinteractions you can find out more about them here.
