Sensitize. Synthesize. Sell.

Fri, 27 Apr 2012 15:40:41 +0000

It’s happened a few times. I’ll sit down with a business representative for a round of stakeholder interviews, and then one of them quietly comments to me with a snarky-looking grin, “Well, it looks like I’ve been put on Schindler’s list.” True, my team identified a list of key stakeholders from the organization, put individual […]

Heuristically Speaking

Thu, 24 Feb 2011 02:43:41 +0000

A while back I decided it would be helpful to organize a list of design heuristics (call them principles, truisms, or generalities) some other folks had written. The original list I worked from mostly came from well-known practitioners in usability and user centered design — people like Jakob Nielsen (who’s pedagogic style I usually find […]

Location-Based Mobile Apps: Served Up Fast and Hot

Tue, 27 Jul 2010 03:05:34 +0000

Picture this in the not-too-distant future. You’re on your way to pick up some fast food because you’re so amazingly hungry for a new quadruple-decker bacon angus cheeseburger. Your mind is just telling you to go out and get this new meat wad delight, which sits precariously between two deep-fried grilled cheese sandwiches. Hard to […]

The Shape of Design

Mon, 11 Jan 2010 04:58:52 +0000

I alluded to a design theory about two years ago. Rather than allowing it to collect more cerebral dust as my take on what’s important to design becomes aged with each passing day, I thought I’d share parts of it now. In truth, it’s more of a construct than a theory, and it’s not at […]

Visual Affect in 50 milliseconds

Fri, 26 Jun 2009 13:41:38 +0000

Over at A List Apart, Patrick Lynch nicely summarizes the essence of one of my favorite books by Don Norman, Emotional Design and applies it to neuro-activity within our brain. In psychology, emotional reactions to stimuli are called affective responses. Affective responses happen very fast, and are governed in an automatic, unconscious way by the […]

Serving Brain Food Since 1998

Sat, 20 Jun 2009 03:46:25 +0000

As the new tagline says, this site has been serving content since 1998. I don’t know the exact birthday because much of it existed as static content served by the ISP I was with at the time. You could say I was one of the original bloggers. This was long before tools like WordPress or […]

Google and the Iceberg Principle of Design

Tue, 24 Mar 2009 02:31:34 +0000

A lot has already been said about Douglas Bowman’s decision to leave Google. From what I understand, he was the company’s first visual designer. I don’t know the man, but I think we can take his perspective, at least, at face value. In his goodbye post, he offers a glimpse of the design culture at […]

Right After You Stage Dive Into a Pit Filled with Broken Glass and Half-eaten Barbituates

Go get some car insurance. That’s right. Tell them Iggy Pop sent you.
