Work: Skip Intro
Book: In 2002 I embarked on co-writing a book with long time colleague Duncan McAlester. The book, Skip Intro, is designed to help educate the Flash community specifically and designers/programmers at large that usability isn’t a dirty word. It doesn’t mean making boring pedestrian web sites, and it doesn’t mean abandoning Flash. Quite the contrary, Flash offers advanced usability elements that traditional HTML websites could never hope to achieve. The book showed designers how to start thinking about their users and, more importantly, how to translate that understanding when they start designing or coding.
