What it means to be a compassionate designer

\

“What exactly does it mean to be a compassionate designer? It means doing things that help us not only understand, but relate to the users we design for. To feel for them. To put ourselves in their shoes, even if our own lives are totally opposite from them. Sound simple? It is. You just have to do it.” – David Armano

Another great one from David. Read his article on Creating Compassionate Designers for tips on how to develop compassion for our users.

The little things really do matter

“We live in a world where the little things really do matter.  Each encounter no matter how brief is a micro interaction which makes a deposit or withdrawal from our rational and emotional subconscious.  The sum of these interactions and encounters adds up to how we feel about a particular product, brand or service.  Little things.  Feelings.  They influence our everyday behaviors more than we realize.” - David Armano
