Create pleasurable experiences for people who interact with our content

“Users don’t care about convention and heuristics and all of that. Users just want to have a good experience achieving the outcomes they set out to achieve in your site/system/product.  Surely we, as experience designers, can not only design a non-problematic experience. Surely we can actually create a pleasurable experience through the way that people interact with our content or functionality.” – Leisa Reichelt

And not just because of the potential legal implications, but because it’s our job.” - Leisa Reichelt
