Bottle Rocket Hosts DSVC Working Lunch

To continue our mission to educate, learn from and involve the local community here at Bottle Rocket, we hosted this month’s Dallas Society of Visual Communications (DSVC) working lunch in our office last week. The event was open to the public and before long the new faces started piling in.

Professionals from diverse disciplines – writers, photographers, illustrators, producers, Internet and mobile professionals and more – gathered to hear Stephen P. Anderson speak on Seductive Interaction Design: Creating Playful, Fun and Effective User Experiences.

The attendees discussed what makes something truly emotionally engaging and whether or not there is a place for delight in digital business applications. Stephen also guided us through a couple specific examples of sites who have designed serendipity, arousal, rewards, and other seductive elements into their applications.

The Dallas Society of Visual Communications (DSVC) was founded in 1957 and has grown to become one of the largest independent clubs of its kind. DSVC Working Lunches are lunch-hour events that make industry information and coaching on real-world creative and business issues more accessible to busy professionals.
