This week, Chris and Jon continue their series on defining an effective design process. Once you’ve figured out the problem, what should you do next? There are so many things that can happen (and usually do!) and Chris and Jon give their insights on what to focus on next. Stay tuned to part 2 of this series!

We’re doing a series of shows devoted to “the dreaded P word!“, based on the essay that Chris wrote. We’ll have more in-depth discussion in the coming weeks!

This week, Chris and Jon talk about defining an effective process. Let’s face it. Defining a useful process is hard! There’s so many questions about what to do first. And worst of all, it’s really easy to start jumping in and making mockups. Stay tuned to this episode to hear about why that may not be the best idea!

This week, Jon and Chris talk about the recent keynote from Apple. The show starts with a quick product review of all the different product announcements made by Tim Cook & co. Then in the second half, they get into a discussion about what’s happened with Apple over the past 10 years, and why they may no longer be the center of innovation in the post-Jobs era. Stay tuned for a different kind of Design Review episode!

Also… Here is Steve Jobs’ legendary keynote when he introduced the very first iPhone:

Please forgive the popup ads. It’s YouTube, not us… It’s still worth your time to watch it. So please do!

Also, Jon mentioned on the show that he keeps a spreadsheet of iOS gestures, just to keep track of the different multitouch interactions that people need to know and remember to use their phones. Let him know what you think!

After 3 attempts, Chris and Jon finally get this one recorded! Phew! Jon interviews Chris about what it’s like to work on car stuff, what the future holds, and how YOU could be part of it!

The discussion was inspired by Chris’ recent essay on car UX design, entitled “About Car UX” 🙂

How do you create an MVP that doesn’t suck?

This week’s show came to us from one of the listeners. They asked:

How to define the MVP? How picky do we have to be after the devs implement the design? Where is the line?

Have you ever had to make an MVP before?

Jonathan and Chris dive in and share their own successes and failures, as well as their advice on how to work with engineers after you deliver a project.

This week on the Design Review: we discuss the principle of No UI and whether or not the best interface really is no interface.

Golden Krishna, now a designer at Google, wrote a short essay (and subsequently a book) on this topic, though he admits that it was inspired by other stuff written by pioneers like Don Norman and Mark Weiser of Xerox PARC.

Here’s the link:
https://www.cooper.com/journal/2012/08/the-best-interface-is-no-interface

Scott Berkun, author and speaker on creativity, philosophy, and culture, wrote a rebuttal to the whole No UI movement. Here’s a link:
