#130 Ranch stories with Alan Cooper (Part 1)

Alan Cooper was the closing keynote on the speaker day at UXLx 2016. Alan, the creator of visual basic and co-founder of design agency Cooper, hasn’t made so many public appearances in recent years. Instead he’s been concentrating on running Monkey Ranch – his farmstead in the hills of Petaluma, California.

His keynote took us all a bit by surprise. Though the story of his farm, he gave a thoughtful and meaningful reflection on the state of the tech and design industry and questioned where we are heading. Read More

#97 James & Per & Joe peel onions

We talk to Joe Leech about psychology for designers and bullshit science. We debunk some myths and “rules” that come across as truths.

How do you construct an argument with facts rather than fiction? How do we validate our data inputs and build confidence in our designs and decisions?

We get into the ethics of both research and design patterns as well as testing hypothesis and “the scientific method”. Are you going to freak your organisation out? We’re always looking for a quick fix, but it really isn’t that easy.
