One of the topics that we addressed in the first lecture was the concept that experiences should aim to engage the five senses. I gave the examples of how different colours and music can impact on the experience. How a simple thing as changing the type of music played in the background can have an amazing effect on the customer’s experience.

In the attached link Industry consultant Zhecho Dobrev explores this idea in a little more depth. His ideas also help demonstrate that even simple ideas such “engage the senses” are in practice far more complex than they first seem.
