What People Are Saying
Feeling depressed and lonely, career-wise, design-wise? Do you feel constrained to produce dull, dreary designs? Do your pleas for excitement and emotional content fall on deaf ears? My prescription: 15 minute sessions reading Aarron Walter’s book ‘Designing for Emotion,’ three times a day. Continue until the symptoms disappear. If the symptoms persist, do not despair: reread the book.
If a single, small book can shatter the notion that we’re designing for page views not for people, this is that book.
Every now and then a book comes along that changes the way you think about the web. This is one of them. The web is made for humans, and ‘Designing for Emotion’ does a fantastic job explaining how to keep that in mind. Two swissmiss thumbs up!
