There’s no magic mojo that helps a designer notice bad design; there’s no secret compendium of design mysteries that developers just don’t have access to. Good interaction design is fundamentally about keeping your senses honed – noticing the little things and respecting user intuition will help you pinpoint exactly what it is that makes an interface flow. In this talk I won’t be showing code – I’ll be breaking down the usability of the world around you, and preaching the virtues of interaction awareness. Trust me: you’ll never look at a microwave the same way again.
