Abstract

The theory of rhetoric could provide critical foundations for interactive design. One core idea of rhetoric is the rhetorical appeals, which include logos, pathos, and ethos. The authors report a research-based design project with reflections from the design process and usability evaluations. The project explored the application of the rhetorical appeals in the design of a mobile web application for childhood obesity prevention.
