In watching the 2007 Ted Talk by Eames Demetrious on his grandparents,
Charles & Ray Eames, I came across this fascinating quote:
"The role of the designer is that of a good host anticipating the
needs of their guest."
This pleased me.
It fits into my thinking of what experience design is all about.
Thought I'd share.
(Sorry for the lack of a link to the interesting video. On a plane w/o
wifi and iTunes doesn't have an easy way to get the original link.)
