Persuasion for Designers
There's a myth that great design is self-evident. The truth is that
it's not often as easy as it sounds. Sooner or later, every designer
gets frustrated when a shortage of time and resources—or an excess of
politics—keeps your great solution from seeing the light of day. How
do you prevent it? How do you change course if it looks like things
are headed that direction? Kim Goodwin, author of Designing for the
Digital Age, will share some techniques and encourage discussion of
your own experiences.
Kim Goodwin is the author of Designing for the Digital Age, a
comprehensive new book on designing digital products and services. In
the course of her career, Kim has been an in-house and freelance
designer, in-house creative director, and VP Design at Cooper, leading
a practice of interaction, visual, and industrial designers. Kim has
led projects involving a tremendous range of design problems,
including Web sites, complex analytical and enterprise applications,
phones, medical devices, services, and even organizations. Her clients
and employers have included everything from one-man startups to the
world's largest companies, as well as universities and government
agencies. This range of experience and a passion for teaching have led
to Kim's popularity as an author and as a speaker at conferences and
companies around the world.
