What Every Designer Should Know About Voice

The rise of voice interfaces will change the way we design everything.

When we hear the term “voice” we often think of platforms such as Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, but the growing popularity of voice interfaces will make them a primary means of digital interaction across every medium, including web and mobile.

Voice will impact every form of digital design, forever changing both our design process and the organizational structure of design teams.

I recently spoke about this shift in the design world at FirstMark’s Design Driven NYC, the largest monthly creative community in NYC. You can watch the full video below (the first half of the video is the presentation, followed by Q&A from the audience).
