プラットフォームを越えた共通のデザインとして一貫したものを考えており、デバイスが進化を続けている段階なので、今すぐに実現可能なものではありませんが、デザイナーの責任はそれを見越してアイデアを出していくことにあります。デザイナーはユーザーのためにデザインするのであって、デバイスにあわせてデザインしてはダメです。

「モバイルは終わった」とAndroid OSのチーフデザイナーが語る意味とは?

風通し良い環境を作ることで、全メンバーがUI・UXを自分の責任としてとらえるようになることを期待しています。それがUI・UXレベルの底上げにつながると確信しているからです。でも今は、そこまでたどり着くまでの地ならしの期間。先はまだ長いですよ。より良いUI・UXづくりは、開発風土づくりそのものなんです。

The stronger the culture, the less process a company needs. When the culture is strong, you can trust everyone to do the right thing. People can be independent and autonomous. They can be entrepreneurial.

Don’t Fuck Up the Culture

Try never to be the smartest person in the room. And if you are, I suggest you invite smarter people or find a different room.

I’m not a driven businessman, but a driven artist. I never think about money. Beautiful things make money.

As the complexity of our ecosystems grows, we will need plans and prototypes more than ever before. To wrangle strategy, structure, and schedule in our heads is absurd. We must put ideas into the world, so we can see them. Maps, sketches, words, and wireframes are essential, but we must also use the medium of construction for architecture and design.

Medium - Information Architecture

Big data is like teenage sex: everyone talks about it, nobody really knows how to do it, everyone thinks everyone else is doing it, so everyone claims they are doing it…

Linked data helps us make sense of information.

From Design to “DE$IGN” … or “D€SIGN” works too (smile).

Earlier this week I spoke at TED on a few observations I’ve been making about the business value of design as my design adventure progresses into its third month. I’ve been asked when the TED talk will be available online — I do not know that information unfortunately. In any case, it was nice to get a chance to speak to my love of donuts, the Bauhaus, and a few challenges in moving industry perceptions and attitudes towards design as about being just a pretty face, and instead seeing the strategic value of design that leads to higher performance in a product, service, and idea. The primary driving thesis was an article I wrote for the WSJ on "Three Principles for Using Design Successfully."

     My talk was primarily centered around the W Coast, but there’s tons and tons of great design and venture work all across the US, including the fine leadership work in NY by Ben, Tina, and Craig. When the TED talk finally posts, I’ll make sure to put it up on this blog. A couple of the slides I made are attached above. -JM
