This week I got caught up in the hands-on redesign exercise. It was fun and somewhat challenging to state what we were changing and justifying those changes.
There was a lot of reading this week. However, I really liked the resource of “Designing with the Mind in Mind.” That was really interesting how it broke down the hows of our limited attention span, our imperfect memory, and the way we learn. It segued in nicely to the two pins that caught my attention:
- Cut through the information overload with effective story-telling
- How to design words from a writer who hates to read
Those pages are bookmarked and I know that I will continue to reference them as they are chock full of good advice.
