Author Quotes

[Design is] not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.

A lot of companies have chosen to downsize, and maybe that was the right thing for them. We chose a different path. Our belief was that if we kept putting great products in front of customers, they would continue to open their wallets.

A lot of people in our industry haven?t had very diverse experiences. So they don?t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one?s understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have.

Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something ? your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

All we are is our ideas, or people. That?s what keeps us going to work in the morning, to hang around these great bright people. I?ve always thought that recruiting is the heart and soul of what we do.
