How do you feel? Empathy mapping
Empathy mapping is key to good product design. It’s a tool designed to help you take a step back from the product or service you’re building, to really think about who you’re creating it for.
In a traditional sense, it’s mapping against four quadrants: what do people do, say, think and feel. And ideally it draws on strong research so you’re not plucking answers out of thin air and hoping you’ve got it right.
When designing experiences, I like to step a little further. Because it’s not just about what someone is experiencing now – how someone feels after an experience is what impacts satisfaction and loyalty.
