Design for Flow

The state of "flow" is frequently discussed as one of the highest levels of human consciousness. People engaged in pursuits from sports to music to programming describe it as a highly productive state where they are at their most creative, effective and engaged. In this session, I'll discuss design strategies for creating interactive products that promote this sense of flow, as well as examples of interactions that bring out the best in human creativity, thinking and collaboration.


Dave Cronin is the Director of Interaction Design at Cooper, where he's worked since 1999 leading interaction design projects ranging from computer-assisted orthopedic surgery to museum information systems. He's also the co-author of About Face 3 and Design Editor for ACM Interactions.
