Publisher's Summary

This Element is an excerpt from From Concept to Consumer: How to Turn Ideas into Money by Phil Baker. Available in print and digital formats.
Here's why design matters more now than ever, what every company can learn from Apple, and a five-step industrial design process that works. One element is among the most important parts of creating a successful consumer technology product: industrial design. It's so powerful that it can impact the emotional bond between product and user. As products become smaller and more personal, they become expressive of who we are.

Awesome!

I am a 30+ year designer working in an industry that still drags their feet on design. And I can always start a good fight by asking to see their phone.

This bit of audio refreshes my spirit.

Decent overview of the importance of ID

Decent description of the importance of ID. There are better articles under Design thing that touch on this and other more motivating as stimulating aspects of design.
