Designing Across Senses: Multimodal Product Design

Based on the best-selling O'Reilly title, "Designing Across Senses: A Multimodal Approach to Product Design” this talk describes what multimodal design is, it’s core design principles, and how to create multimodal products.

Christine has been a designer, leader, strategist, and author for fifteen years. She has developed new consumer hardware and software used by millions of people around the world, for companies like Intel, Xbox, Samsung, Google. These multimodal products have made their way onto wrists and screens, into pockets, living rooms and public spaces, and span over a dozen interface modes. They have been awarded a Cannes CyberLion, two patents, and extensive media coverage.

Park's book about physical interfaces, Designing Across the Senses: A Multimodal Approach to Product Design, was published by O’Reilly Media in 2018. It is a best-selling title in Design and Usability, and has been presented at SXSW and IXDA.
