Newsletter #1

A curated content about design, in some way or another. And some music too.

Greetings subscriber.

Yes, you are signed to another design newsletter.

I'm one of those who think maybe I shouldn't be doing this. There are people with many more interesting things to say than me, but the objective that I intend to publish these newsletters is to have somehow ordered all the resources and information that I publish on social networks.

And it will also help me (I hope) to have a personal routine and publish every week. My objective is, mainly, to publish content related in some way to design (posts, articles, resources, events, courses ...) but it is possible that others that I may consider interesting may come in, which may be about music, cinema, or another discipline.

I will see how it evolves because I do not want to be too strict, neither with the amount of material that I will publish nor with the format, so you will always be in time to unsubscribe when perhaps it will not provide you with anything of value.

So let's start.

P.D. Why is it in English? Almost all the content I find is in this language and for me, it is also an exercise in practicing and getting used to writing it more (and better). I hope it doesn't bother you too much. The language of design is universal, right? 🙃

Oliver Grabes, Head of Design at Braun, on the Magic of Making Things Simple

From the tender age of 14, Oliver Grabes knew that he wanted to pursue industrial design. He liked cars, he liked objects, and wanted to have a hand in shaping these things. "I knew I had to become an industrial designer," Grabes says. "That was lucky in that I didn't have to make up my mind of what to study; it was more a question of which design school to go to and which branch of industrial design to pursue."

NASA brings back its iconic worm logo

Laws of UX: The Book

An understanding of psychology—specifically the psychology behind how users behave and interact with digital interfaces—is perhaps the single most valuable nondesign skill a designer can have. The most elegant design can fail if it forces users to conform to the design rather than working within the “blueprint” of how humans perceive and process the world around them. This practical guide explains how you can apply key principles in psychology to build products and experiences that are more intuitive and human-centered.
