How I Teach

Reading “How I Teach” by Jon Kolko was like going back to design school from another perspective. A great book for people into design education; but also those learning design, because it helps to understand the teaching practices’ intentions.

40 One-Sentence Writing Tips

at Josh Spector

Comment

If you write, read this: “40 One-Sentence Writing Tips”. The ones I most liked: “11. ‘Wow, that had great grammar,’ said nobody ever.” and “39. The secret to writing is a paradox: Confine your ideas to a box in which anything is possible.”

Writing for Designers

at A List A Part

Comment

Designers must be good at writing. Interfaces are full of texts; User journeys work better as written narratives then “canvas-like personas”; Diagrams require clear and concise text; Design cases and reports are important artifacts for non-designers stakeholders; Handoffs work better with side notes; and I can keep filling this with arguments… I read “Writing for designers” by Scott Kubie some months ago and it’s a short book with practical advice on avoiding procrastination and starting writing better design artifacts.

The Mom Test

Comment

Asking the right question makes all the difference. And designing successful bootstrapped products requires one to ask the right questions and avoid false-positive answers as soon as possible. I’ve recently read “The Mom Test” by Rob Fitzpatrick and that’s a book with useful and practical tips on talking to people about your ideas their real, and worth solving, problems.
