Finding Fun: Tips and Techniques from Game Design Principles

It’s time to reset how we incorporate game design into our products and services. The belabored buzzword, “Gamification” devalues a branch of design that is still undeniably more effective at onboarding, engagement, and satisfaction. Why are games so much fun? The answer is far deeper than points and badges.

In “Finding Fun”, Peter will recall his experience co-founding an award-winning game studio and share which practices, lessons, and principles have impacted his 10+ years of product design.

Speaker

Peter Jones

Peter has been creating experiences for games, products, and services for over 14 years. As a design leader and strategist, he specializes in building design systems and product teams in early-stage companies. Currently, he leads design at Flow Kana, a California-based supply chain technology company whose mission is to support the small, independent farmer.
