“Experientia was already recently spotlighted in Ottagono‘s pages (May, no. 260). But we can’t fail to mention this company founded in Turin by Pierpaolo Perotto, Mark Vanderbeeken, Michele Visciola and Jan-Christoph Zoels, given its uncommon traits. Top quality (and successful) designers put people, their behaviors and their observation thereof at the center of their research. The 35 people in this international group have worked with some of the world’s leading companies. Clients include the likes of Alcatel-Lucent, Asus, Intel, Mozilla, Samsung, SAP, UniCredit, UNStudio (to name just a few) for whom they develop projects on user research, ethnography, interaction design and strategic design. It’s also fascinating to see how their recent undertakings cross design with worlds that are traditionally apart from it, such as healthcare, urban planning, financial services, and mobility. Design is taken to mean innovation in products, services, and processes, putting people and users at the center of focus. Experientia shows how, in order to design, we must understand how people really live. Today and in the future. This leads to five action areas: vision/ understanding/ design/ prototyping/ testing. In Italy this is an uncommon thing.
We are an international experience design consultancy helping companies and organisations to innovate their products, services and processes by putting people and their experiences first.

Can behavioral change address local energy issues, raise people’s awareness energy consumption issues, and directly support non-profit organizations at the same time? With the Nice pilot of the CITYOPT project, we have seen strong suggestions that it can. It also suggests that the sense of belonging to a local community is a strong motivation for […]
Patient-centricity is one of the defining issues facing clinical trials in the pharma industry. The past few years have seen a growing awareness by pharmaceutical companies of the importance of patient-centricity – but they have also illustrated that not everyone is clear on just what patient-centricity is, or how to achieve it. After using UX […]

One of the things we do here at Experientia that really sets us apart from other UX agencies is behavioral modeling. Our cognitive and behavioral models go beyond the standard customer journeys and personas (both useful tools, and often preliminary steps to behavioral modeling) to create frameworks that can be used to make people more […]
