Don't do things better, do better things. Digital technology. It has crept into our lives, and so deeply has it penetrated us, that it has completely redesigned us. In the deep oceans and the high skies, it is now as elemental in our landscape as the wind and falling rain. It's not going to stop. Due to the way civilisations progress, we are about to zip-line and observe more change in the next ten years, than of the last hundred. But how do we prevent this acceleration from eroding away our humanity? As technology becomes increasingly immaterial, ask this: does the technology we've created add more layers of confusion? When we strip away all the technology, what are we left with? The same thing we started with -- people. Incorporating the psychological and philosophical fields into the design process, Pete Trainor takes us back to the fundamental questions, that drive us, and through a journey of design thinking, he asks one simple question, the one we have asked through all times... why?

Why do so many companies' research projects fail? And why do even the best corporations sometimes struggle to make good use of their research data? Strangely enough, no text on user research has tackled these questions-until now. Ignite Your Research Mojo is the first book designed expressly to focus on the factors that can spell success or failure when researching end user needs and behaviors. It was written for professionals of all experience levels seeking to contribute work that is actually used. Beginning with a section geared to anyone who wants to do good research, the book tackles fundamental questions such as why you should do user research (even though Steve Jobs probably didn't) and how to formulate hypotheses. The second section addresses how to be an effective researcher, including recognizing and avoiding bad research, incorporating the power of emotions in product design, and eschewing "fun" deliverables that make your product team cry. The final section focuses on factors that make for successful (or unsuccessful) user research, including company culture, team organization, interpersonal abilities, and product-development philosophies. With its laid-back, humorous authorial style and whimsical illustrations, Ignite Your Research Mojo breathes fresh air into the world of professional development.

A primer for design professionals across all disciplines that helps them create compelling and original concept designs by hand--as opposed to on the computer--in order to foster collaboration and win clients. In today's design world, technology for expressing ideas is pervasive; CAD models and renderings created with computer software provide an easy option for creating highly rendered pieces. However, the accessibility of this technology means that fewer designers know how to draw by hand, express their ideas spontaneously, and brainstorm effectively.In a unique board binding that mimics a sketchbook, Drawing Ideas provides a complete foundation in the techniques and methods for effectively communicating to an audience through clear and persuasive drawings.
