How can a firm begin to practice this philosophy? What are the resources and skills involved in implementation? Based on our work with diverse clients, we have distilled the process into distinct phases that can be easily remembered with the acronym EMPOWER. The Psycho-Aesthetics process is a powerful catalyst in empowering clients and design professionals to innovate. Not coincidentally, EMPOWER also describes the experience that we aim to create for consumers. Empowering experiences create connections between consumers and brands.

At each stage of life, designs become part of our lives and the stories we tell ourselves and those around us. They resonate with us emotionally. Observing this phenomenon is much easier than creating it. There is no shortage of corporate attention and resources directed toward understanding the needs and desires of consumers. Despite these efforts, most new offerings fail to connect with consumers, and hordes of supposedly “satisfied” consumers defect. Without a consistent emotional connection, there is no brand connection—no barrier to defection.
