Design Emotion and The News

On 28 November, a special Design & Emotion evening will be organized at the Waag in Amsterdam by Design & Emotion NL.

How do we perceive the news today and why is it designed the way it is? What is the purpose of news in the daily lives of ‘news consumers’? What kind of emotional impact does our daily intake of news have and how do you design the news in such a way that you achieve the desired effect? What could the news look like in the future?


  • Jaap Leemeijer - editor at NOS TV news & Barbara Walet - chief director and production NOS news - interview
  • Prof. Dr. Jeroen Jansz  - Professor of communication and media at Erasmus University - lecture
  • Sandra Karis - user experience manager news at Sanoma - interview
  • With a special intermezzo by Bert Kommerij - developer/producer media/writer, director radio, tv/internet productions

Design team
Throughout the evening a design team will be present that will create future concepts on the news inspired by the input of our guests and will present these at the end of the evening.
