Imagine the NYTimes running the headline "Studies Show Women are Different from Men." How about "Findings Indicate 19- to 34-year-olds Shop Differently than Boomers?" Neither would be headlines and both are stating the obvious, yet few companies actively utilize gender and age specific design principles when producing marketing materials.
During today's session, NextStage's Joseph Carrabis shares research findings on the following:
- Gender specific motivational factors
- Gender neutral motivational factors
- Which colors attract different age groups
- How first impressions effect different audiences
- How element placement on a page influences the decision process
- Why the secret to marketing design is to "have someone else's experience"
Learn from one of the most quoted sources working at the intersection of marketing and usability today.
