At the Design and Emotion Conference 2016, a 90-minute workshop was conducted to accompany a short paper and a poster, aiming to communicate Mafalda’s research on happiness-related symbolic meaning, and disseminate the SIM toolkit.
36 participants who joined the workshop were able to better understand Positive Design and the role of symbolic meaning in users’ happiness, and use the toolkit in a design case.
