[ Interaction ]

Interaction from the English inter- (between) and action (exercise of the capacity to act).


An interaction is a phenomenon produced by an exchange between two objects (inert or living), which impacts both the sender and the receiver. An interaction can induce different kinds of feedback, including but not limited to sound, visual, olfactory, and/or physical feedback. Indeed, interaction can be considered the start of communication between two objects down the line. 

At Meaningful, interaction is one of the design fields we investigate when we design digital services and products. It enables us to define how people, products, services, and systems interact with each other. That’s why we make sure users get appropriate feedback when interacting with a product to make them feel more comfortable. We strive to minimize the number of interactions with an interface to create a seamless experience. In our studio, we brainstorm new and enticing interaction models for meaningful user experiences. Interaction is one of the main playing fields for designers to investigate the emotional impact on users for a product or service.
