From the Author

Hi everyone!
We decided to write this book after Jonathan learned of a story about a young girl dying in a hospital because the nurses caring for her were too distracted with badly design software. 
You can read the post on Medium.
It hurt him deeply and as he looked around in other places he saw the need for design everywhere, not just to make things look nicer or even more pleasant to use. 
We wrote this book to shed a light on bad design and as a call for designers, and those who create products we use every day, to tackle these issues.
