Learn UX Design from Don Norman

When it comes to preparing for the future of design, there’s no one better to guide you than the Godfather of UX.

The first person to hold a position that had “User Experience” in the title was Don Norman, who coined the now-ubiquitous term when he worked for Apple in the mid-90s. Norman’s 1988 book The Design of Everyday Things remains a sort of UX bible, touting iterative development and frictionless relationships between user and object.
