Emotional Design in Travel

Hello everybody,

I am researching the influence of design on travel. Is it possible to evoke possitive emotions through design? Which elements enhance happy feelings and make visitors book online?

Please e-mail your (personal) experience and examples of travel websites: emotional_design@yahoo.com


Hi Rene,

have a look at the following interesting links:


I am an active member of the Design & Emotion Society and I can tell you that a lot is going on right now in understanding the emotional impact of products, brands and interactions. In my Master’s research which focused on emotion in interactive products, I found that it was mostly possible to evoke emotions through visual elements. Interaction proved to be really complex to analyze.

Perhaps you could explain me a bit better what your research focuses on. Just contact me at: http://www.design-emotion.com/en/marco/contact.html
