Gofore 2021 – Creative Empathy for Meaningful UX

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.
