It's almost... too quiet: Creating Sound for User Experiences

  • Tuesday, August 17, 2021
  • 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
  • Virtual (Zoom)


In this practical presentation, we'll discuss how to enhance your user's experience with sound. We'll break down the discussion into three key areas: Why, How and Test.

First we'll look at why sound design should be part of your work and answer the key question, "When is it appropriate and what are the considerations?"

Then we'll get practical and discuss how to create original  sound along with what tools are needed. We will also work through the considerations necessary to make sure that what's created translates well for the user. 

Finally, as designers we test and validate. We'll look at the tools readily available to UX designers to test what was designed.

Key takeaway: A clear understanding of why and how to create and test sound for different UX needs.

Surprise: Jump scares are boring without sound! (jk - but true) - UX designers are the best Sound Designers!

Speaker: Clint Ribble

Clint's focus on user experiences began in 1995 when he started developing websites and interactive media for clients while studying sound design and audio production at Berklee College of Music. He incorporated a multi-faceted approach to design combining both the auditory and visual senses for a holistic, encompassing experience.
