Experientia partner Jan-Christoph Zoels is currently in Ahmedabad, India, for a client project.

But he found time for an informal talk at the highly acclaimed National Institute of Design, scheduled for Wednesday 11 February at 17:15.

“Join us for the Baatein session with Jan-Christoph Zoels on Wednesday at 5: 15 pm sharp in auditorium. Please be there on time to witness how new forms of interactive media can create wonders with strong functional value.

Jumping jack flash – new forms of interactions

This talk presents some key trends and design ideas for our interactions with devices, services or applications. As more and more devices support location-aware, contextual or rich media, how will we interact with them, choose content, navigate or connect multiple sources of information? The presentation explores gestural, haptic and other sensorial interfaces for a variety of applications.

Jan-Christoph Zoels is responsible for user experience design at Experientia, based in Turin, Italy. Until recently he was senior associate professor at Interaction Design Institute Ivrea, where he ran the business innovation workshops called Applied Dreams.

In his work Jan-Christoph focuses specifically on people’s experience of mobile services and applications, and on using information technology to support simplicity.

Previously he was director of information architecture for Sapient (New York), and senior designer at Sony Design Center USA. He holds four patents. He has taught at Rhode Island School of Design, Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht, Samsung’s Innovative Design Laboratory in Seoul, and Domus Academy, Milan.”
