Experiences can include frustration with a confusing smartphone app, arguing the month's bill with a worker at the power company, or the experience of a person who is homeless trying to find a safe place to sleep for the night. All of these experiences are composed of countless micro-moments and influenced by designed things like phones, customer service policies, and park benches.
