We were very humbled—and excited!—to be joined today by Don Norman for a live video Q&A discussion about his seminal book on design The Design of Everyday Things.
Don is widely regarded for his expertise in the fields of design, usability engineering and cognitive science, for being a prolific advocate for human-centred design, for his gentle humour and for the inspiration and orientation he provides for designers.
We’re currently reading The Design of Everyday Things as part of book club. Come and join the chapter-by-chapter discussion in the forums if you’d enjoy working through the book together but in your own time.
We recorded a video of today’s session, and it’s jam-packed with wisdom and answers specifically addressed to the UX Mastery community, so make sure you have a look! Don and myself were joined in the chat by fellow book club members Hawk, Paddy, Nalin, Hollie, Erin, Caglar, Dan and Ashlea.
Oh, and if you’re going to grab a copy of The Design of Everyday Things, be sure to get the revised and expanded 2013 edition. As Don described during the Q&A session, this latest version is quite different. There are two additional chapters and many new examples and stories to bring the book right up to date.
