Bite sized article on Product Design in Dwell this month.
Pros: Including “TIMTOWTDI” (there is more than one way to do it) and Poka-yok (making things error proof) in the words to know. They’re fun to say and really important concepts.
Cons: NOT including Cradle to Cradle in the “Books you should read.” I know, I know, they only had 3… Although hopefully the Taschen book, Designing the 21st Century, might have some of that in it. It would also have been nice to have an exercise or two.
