Do you remember when you were 10 years old, playing Fortnite on your smartphone? No? Me neither!
Gen-Z (people born after 1996) are not like you and me. They are using screens on the school playground, while you and I were playing with marbles and skipping ropes. Building products for a generation born with technology at their fingertips is both a blessing and a curse. A curse, because it’s tough to understand what’s going on in their heads. A blessing, because you know that “you are not your user” and you can’t use your childhood as a reference point. The only way to understand them? Proper research.
Loren will share the challenges the Flair team has faced when trying to understand and delight a Gen-Z audience, and the solutions they’ve found along the way.
