offtrail one: Jenny Shen - Persuasive Design Patterns


offtrail is an event series purely dedicated to design. In every edition, we will focus on one particular topic. Leaving the comfort of a beaten path and exploring what’s beyond the roadside allows for learning, collaborating with like-minded people and approaching design from an entirely new, sometimes unconventional angle.

Follow us into the rabbit hole and join us on a journey through colors, shapes, systems and motion.

About the workshop

In this hands-on and immersive workshop, you will learn how to design with psychology principles that drive human action. By the end of the workshop, you will have a deeper perspective of cognitive psychology and be prepared to design effectively at the root of users’ needs.

What you’ll learn:

  • How to design to sell with e-commerce patterns
  • How to design for engagement with the Hook Model and engagement patterns
  • How to build trust with trust patterns
  • What dark patterns are and how to design ethically

20:00 Talk by Jenny Shen: “Persuasive Design”

Persuasive Design: design experiences aligned with human motivations

Just because people can do something does not guarantee that they will. Firstly, they must be motivated. Secondly, they must be persuaded to make decisions. Understanding the emotions that support the desired behaviour is the key to conversion.

With experience in reward programs, B2C products and e-commerce services, Jenny will show you how to apply psychology and persuasive design patterns, and why they work.

You will learn the underlying psychological principles that drive humans toward action, and how to win customers and keep them without please-don’t-go pop-ups.
