Two great design lessons to start your day with

A good design analysis ...

"Aza Raskin teaches us design process & how to make a paper plane

Aza is brilliant (sometimes). He is truly the spirit of his father. He has articulated design process using such a simple example. It is just wonderful to see.

In this piece, he articulates why iteration is such an important part of the design process. Not just as he says to do “trial & error” but as a means of improving one’s understanding of the actual problem(s) trying to be solved.

He articulates this brilliantly through the use of a very very simple and easy to understand project--making a great paper airplane.

David Armano uses the horrible (my opinion) London Olympics logo design to teach us about Visual Design and Communications Design

In his latest post David Armano takes a look at the London Olympics logo for 2012. If you haven’t seen it, here it is: (below left)

Then he compares it to the current logo design for the 2016 bid by Chicago: (below right)

He then explains in what is a very convincing manner why Chicago’s logo is so much better than the London one."    (Continued via Engage!)    [Usability Resources]
