The Thoughtless Design of Everyday Things

Thursday, January 27, 2022 -
5:30pm to 6:45pm

IIBA Winnipeg is pleased to present - The Thoughtless Design of Everyday Things

Description
Why do so many software systems and physical products seem to have been designed by someone who has never used a product like that before? This presentation explores that mystery. You’ll see numerous examples of thoughtlessly designed products that violate nine fundamental principles of good design, along with several examples of particularly effective designs.

By studying such products we can identify lessons that can help designers, product development managers, and even consumers. I’ll share nearly 20 of those lessons with you in this presentation. You’ll also hear about multiple techniques that can help designers craft products with a focus on how consumers will use them, not just on their features.
