Creative Empathy for Meaningful UX – Gofore 2021

Meaningful human experiences address our deepest needs. And Creative Empathy helps us discover those needs.

So while it can seem mysterious or magical, empathy is more like a muscle. That’s why anyone, including you, can train and develop it!

Creative Empathy is our backstage pass to each other’s subconscious experience.
