This week, Google Design Director Jens Riegelsberger joins the show to discuss how user research can fundamentally help organizations make better decisions — and not just about the design of their products.
My old friend Dan Cederholm joins the show. His work at Simplebits was profoundly influential in the early web, but he may be best known as the cofounder of Dribbble. We talk about this history of that community as well as what it’s like to build a reputation as a designer today.
My old friend Hiten Shah joins the program. He’s the founder of numerous successful startups and mentor to many others. We discuss growth hacking, how it differs from formal user research, and how to make products people love as quickly as we can.
Web animation expert Rachel Naybors joins the show to talk about her new book, Animation at Work. We discuss how to use movement on the Web appropriately through an understanding human perception and cognition.
Special guest Sarah B. Nelson, Program Architect at IBM Studios, joins the show to discuss how to hack your office to enable better design work to happen.
Justin McGuirk, Chief Curator at the London Design Museum joins the show to talk about their current exhibit, "California: Designing Freedom." We trace how the last 60 years of west coast history influence the design of the products we use today.
This week on the show, we talk to Laura Kalbag about her new book, Accessibility for Everyone. We discuss how digital products have an increasing mandate to be broadly usable by everyone in society, and what we can do to achieve better accessibility in our designs.
Special guest Josh Clark joins the show to talk about the implications of artificial intelligence on design and how designers can start to understand and influence the capabilities and limitations of these incredibly complex systems.
This week we discuss CSS Grid Layout with Jen Simmons, Designer Advocate at the Mozilla Foundation. We also cover how web standards are made, how that's different from the past, and how to keep up with it all.
Hardware designer Matt Webb joins the show to discuss why it’s so difficult to design great physical products, how our expectations have changed so much, and why he loves wearing his Snapchat Spectacles to cricket matches.
