  • getting the message across visual attention Aesthetic Design and what users remember
    Designing Interactive Systems, 2008
    Co-Authors: Alistair Sutcliffe, Abdallah Namoune

    Abstract:

    An investigation into user attention and Design quality in websites is described. The investigation combined reported attention to areas of interest, with free memory recall and a questionnaire to assess whether areas of interest that users attended to were also remembered and rated well in terms of Aesthetic Design and usability. Users’ memory of areas of interest and Design features agreed reasonably well with their reported attention. The sites which were rated more attractive overall had an open layout, extensive use of animations which drew users’ attention, and good Aesthetic Design ratings. Aesthetics was the more important determinant for overall attractiveness; whereas content, brand and usability were more important for overall preference. Based on the analysis, Design guidelines for directing user attention are proposed.

  • product choice and the importance of Aesthetic Design given the emotion laden trade off between sustainability and functional performance
    Journal of Product Innovation Management, 2012
    Co-Authors: Michael G Luchs, Jacob Brower, Ravindra Chitturi

    Abstract:

    This paper investigates the trade-off decision that consumers face when choosing between a product that is perceived to be more sustainable (i.e., more socially and environmentally responsible) and another product that instead is perceived to offer superior functional performance. Prior research has demonstrated that consumers often believe that there is a trade-off between sustainability and performance, and in some cases, this trade-off may be real and not just perceived. The objectives of the current research are to understand the mediators and moderators of this trade-off choice and to illustrate one specific way in which to use this understanding to promote the consumption of relatively more sustainable products despite a perceived performance trade-off.

    Two separate studies were conducted. The first employed a student-based sample, whereas the second employed a nationally representative online sample. In both studies, participants were presented with a choice between two consumer products. One product was depicted as having superior sustainability characteristics (and average functional performance), and the other product was depicted as having superior functional performance (and average sustainability characteristics). Participants were asked to imagine that they were leaning toward choosing one product over the other, and then rated the degree to which they were feeling a set of possible emotions. Following these ratings, participants chose one of the products. The results suggest that consumers presented with such a trade-off will tend to choose the product with superior functional performance over the product with superior sustainability characteristics, due to feelings of distress, until a minimum threshold of functional performance is achieved. The current research also shows that choice given this trade-off depends upon the degree to which consumers value sustainability that, in turn, is mediated by consumers’ feelings of confidence and guilt.

    Further, based on an understanding of the emotions mediating choice in this context, the authors demonstrate how the effective use of product Aesthetic Design can improve the relative choice likelihood of sustainable products. Specifically, the authors demonstrate that superior Aesthetic Design has a disproportionately positive effect on the choice likelihood of sustainability-advantaged (versus performance-advantaged) products due to the effect that superior Aesthetic Design has on overcoming the potential lack of confidence in sustainable products. These findings highlight the specific value of Aesthetic product Design in the context of marketing sustainable products and suggest that it is especially important for firms interested in marketing sustainable products to also develop market-leading product Aesthetic Design capabilities.

  • effect of Aesthetic Design elements on tabletop display interaction
    International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, 2011
    Co-Authors: Hyunglae Lee, Hyunjin Shin, Jihyung Park

    Abstract:

    Recent technology developments in the field of tabletop display systems have provided new types of user experiences that were unavailable in traditional vertical displays. While substantial amount of work has been done on new technologies and usability tests for a tabletop display system, not much attention was focused on Aesthetic Design aspect. In this paper, we studied the effect of Aesthetic Design elements on tabletop display interactions, especially focusing on users’ emotional satisfaction and usability. For this purpose, two different tabletop display systems, one Aesthetically well Designed with 5 selected Design elements (color, typography, form, graphic, and sound) and the other not, were tested in an intelligent collaborative environment. The user study showed that an Aesthetically well-Designed tabletop system not only influenced users’ emotional satisfaction but also usability by enhancing the abilities in human perception, and eventually affected overall user experience with the system.
