In my recent team meetup in San Diego I had the opportunity to meet two design masters: John Maeda and Don Norman.
John Maeda, the head of design at my company Automattic, knows Don Norman and he was able to organise a tour of the new design lab of Don Norman in the San Diego university. After some initial QA with Don we had the opportunity to have a roundtable with both of them.
I was very inspired with both of them but Dan standout has someone on is eighties and still very sharp and a guru on is area, an inspiration to us all.
When in returned home I decided to read their books:
- John Maeda, The Laws of Simplicity
- Don Norman, The Design of Everyday Things
These are two classic books about design, I highly recommend both of them!!!
