Thus, the different forms of presentation, the use of graphic information integrated to the culture of convergence, are discussed, in order to design interfaces and construct interactions that surpass purely functional objectives. With this, we contemplate the aesthetic evidence of information visualization with the purpose of reaching insight, from which the innovation process that fosters the creative experience occurs. Still, we have the Design of Experience as a problem that requires the learning of new methods and techniques. It emphasizes human communication with complex technological systems through the image of the active participation of the beneficiary of that multisensorial and immersive space of experience.

It takes into account the immaterial value, modifying substantially the strategies and the current logic, which move from the seduction and strategic monological management and one-dimensional to the relationship from the cultural / social experience. With this, we move to an iterative cross-media strategy, in which market analysis is fluid. As a result, the role of the new consumer as opposed to the one-dimensional one arises because, as it buys and uses, it is also capable of creating, co-creating, producing, co-producing, fomenting and delimiting, influencing the , production and distribution). Therefore, it is proposed the cross-sectional and integrated study of public, private and singular agents (as individuals) in the constant transformation of cultural apparatus.
