In case you’ve been out-to-lunch today, Shawn Blanc released his book/interview combo Delight is in the Details. This just about sums up what you should get out of it:
My goal is that by the end of this book you will have an increased motivation to strive for excellence in your own work. Also, I hope you can walk away with the knowledge and language to help combat sub-par design and lead your clients, co-workers, and/ or your bosses down a path where they too are willing to take the time to sweat the details.
Great reading (and listening) for anyone who “creates” for a living or for fun. Go get it!
