Video Game Design and Future New Submissions may not be submitted as part of an Art Portfolio.Special Instructions Each work within the Art Portfolio is subject to the same upload rules as its equivalent in individual categories.
A powerful prioritization tool to focus on the scenarios most important to your core personas There are always too many desired scenarios to support and prioritization is inevitably critical to a projects success.
Personas provide a concrete lens through which to make such prioritization decisions, as you can regularly evaluate whether the scenarios you are prioritizing are the most important to optimize for your core personas.
I encourage the use of personas at the earliest stages of product development to bring your users to life and focus your team’s efforts on developing designs optimized for your core audience.
Today's best products not only solve a clear pain point, but do so while understanding, eliciting, and amplifying the emotions of the consumer.
Special Instructions The word count for each piece submitted in a writing portfolio should adhere to the length limits listed in each individual category.
The maximum length for a writing portfolio is 24,000 words (not including the writer’s statement).Facebook has invested heavily in optimizing this feedback loop: reducing sharing friction, providing instant notifications across mobile/web/email, optimizing the news feed algorithm to drive engagement from your closest friends, over-indexing shares from infrequent sharers, and so much more.Instagram's Photo Filters Instagram similarly drove significant sharing in their community but through an entirely different approach.The key to their success involved not only making the sharing process frictionless, but more importantly providing instant social gratification to the sharer.With the advent of mobile devices, it became easy to snap a photo from your device and easily share it within the Facebook app, which was a key enabler to their success.Your photos stood out from the crowd, not only making your photos look good, but making you look good at the same time.Instagram them became the place to share beautiful things and a place where you sought out such beauty.The works can come from one category or any combination of multiple categories.Seniors may submit up to two Art Portfolios, but may not submit the same work in both portfolios.I wanted to share some examples of products that do this well as well as techniques to bring such emotional intelligence into your own product design.Facebook's Sharing Facebook just hit an incredible milestone with over 1 billion people on Facebook on a single day.
