Calm Technology: Designing for the Next Generation of Devices
How can you design technology that becomes a part of a user’s life and not a distraction from it? This practical book explores the concept of calm technology, a method for smoothly capturing a user’s attention only when necessary, while calmly remaining in the background most of the time. You’ll learn how to design products that work well, launch well, are easy to support, easy to use, and remain unobtrusive.
This year I’ll be touring around the world with my latest book, Calm Technology. I hope to see you soon!
