This talk will focus on the delicate balance between aesthetics and usability in product design. It will delve into the art of creating digital experiences that are not only highly functional and user-friendly but also attractive and memorable. By keeping users at the center of the design process, we will determine where and how to make decisions that combine usability and aesthetics, and why prioritizing one over the other might lead to suboptimal results.
