Design Reading List

May 30, 2015

Hello everyone!

I've been at Google I/O for the past couple days, exploring the world of Android, meeting and learning from the Chrome team, and learning all about the latest developments and designs at Google.  It's been pretty cool!

Friendly reminder:  I'm teaching a workshop on "Designing to Sell" on June 22 at Wix Lounge in San Francisco.  You don't want to miss this workshop.

On any team, there are two groups. The people who make the design decisions. The people who refer to themselves as the designers. The first group is the most important. Why is this? Read on.
