Jed Fisher's curator insight, February 5, 2014 5:58 AM

#design

I'm working a Product Configurator where we are looking to use sounds as part of the design (rev'ing engine), I recognized quite quickly that this could be a powerful emotive highlight of the product experience or also viewed as a terrible annoyance.

Thankfully I stumbled across this brilliant TED talk (from way back in 2009). Absolute much watch for anyone interested in design.

Julian talks about how sound can effect us and change our behaviors (positively and negatively). He talks about designing for sound, and “Brand in Sound” (very enlightening).

Made me increasingly conscious of the sounds around me:

a) I call a customer in Hawaii, and each week i hear these lovely tropical birds when I'm on the call with him. They really truly relax me and my behavior on the call changes because of them

b) i use an App called Coffitivity - "increase your creativity!" try it http://coffitivity.com/ ; (it really works!)

c) I'm the proud father of two 4 month year old twins and as any parent will know - the sound of a baby (let alone two) crying is one of the most stressful sounds on the planet!

 

Are you hearing me? I’m Jed and I’m sounding out!

Sound should be a part of the "emotional design". Some years ago the company I was working for was involved in a project related to textures. One of the partners provided functional MRI from subjects while watching different textured surfaces or while touching different textures and materials. Then combining images and touched textures.<br>You could try this with sounds also

Fantastic idea, great way to "visualize" another dimension. Rather than blend yellow to red you could use change a sound pitch/tone. Reminds me of the classic "beep beep" of a boat radar.
