Today on Radio Johnny Daniel Szuc speaks with Steve Baty and Janna DeVylder from Meld Studios in Sydney, Australia. Jana and Steve share insights about their presentations at the first annual UX Hong Kong conference, and what they hope others will take away from the experience.


When we design for an experience…there are qualities to that experience that we need to carry across – the feelings, the emotional side of things – they’re the bits that can be replicated in different types of environments. We need to use words and we need to describe qualities of that experience that can be carried across.

…creating the experience strategy creates benefit immediately. Let’s start to use our projects as way to actually be an example to a company that may not otherwise be thinking or operating that way… Let’s not wait until the perfect strategy is created before we actually do one.

We are seeing a greater focus on holistic experiences. Experiences that essentially cut across organizations, or represent the entirety of the organization rather than a particular channel.


Steve and Janna share their insights about the evolution of the User Experience discipline and they key messages for both the talk and the workshop they will be leading at UX Hong Kong this year.

Dan also asks Steve and Janna to share their insights about the future of the discipline, in addition to potentially new and interesting opportunities, that others are beginning to explore in greater detail.
