Theories About Designing Experiences

Jodi Forlizzi hosts a helpful and insightful overview titled Towards a Framework of Interaction and Experience As It Relates to Product Design –
Theories to Talk About
.

In it, the work of Alben, Battarbee, Cain, Dewey, Forlizzi, Hudspith, Jaasko and Mattelmaki, Makela and Fulton Suri, Margolin, Pine & Gilmore, Rhea are summarized and contrasted. Diagrams of relevant models accompany easy review.

The 2200 words make it a longer-than-average page; any shorter, and the 11 Theories wouldn’t get there due.
