USER FRIENDLY: CLIFF KUANG
There’s a reason why some things work, and others don’t according to Fortune magazine’s book of the year – it’s all about design. In How the Hidden Rules of Design are Changing the Way We Live, Work, and Play, Cliff Kuang (Wired journalist and Google design strategist) and Robert Fabricant (designer of Dalberg Design and frog design fame) investigate how the world is constantly remade according to the principles of user-experience design. They go on to explain how design itself shapes our behaviour, elaborating on, for example, the significance of the nuclear accident at Three Mile Island as it related to smartphones, and how the Great Depression led to our faith in social progress. Kuang works up the thesis with Federico Monsalve.
