AIGA is sponsoring a workshop on how behavioral economic principles can be applied to facilitate improved communication and provide deeper meaning through compelling content and design. After a brief, example-rich introduction to the underlying behavioral economics principles, participants will be split into groups and tasked with applying these principles to solve specific and relevant design challenge. The session will conclude with each group presenting its solution for peer feedback and Q&A.
