About the Author:

Scott Hurff is a product designer and author, who's worked at companies like Tinder, Kleiner Perkins-backed startups, and a pre-IPO ChannelAdvisor. He started his first company while in college, and became the youngest entrepreneur-in-residence at Kodiak Venture Partners in Boston. Scott has led product design for products used by millions of users in a variety of areas, including video sharing, entertainment, and consumer mobile apps. 

Scott teaches designers how to bring their designs to life at designers.how, and writes about what makes products great at scotthurff.com. His work has appeared in a variety of publications, including Smashing Magazine, Die Zeit, Quartz, Gizmodo, Business Insider, and Gamasutra.

Review:

"Products today aren't designed like they were even just a few years ago. This breezy, easy-to-read guide walks you through modern product design as it's practiced in the field by some of today's best designers. Both an overview of the field and a handy how-to guide, this book has something for everyone working to make products people love."
DAN SAFFER, AUTHOR OF MICROINTERACTIONS 


"In a quickly changing space, Scott Hurff shares an informed, actionable perspective."
RANDY J. HUNT, VP DESIGN, ETSY

"A thoughtful and charming guidebook for making great things."
SCOTT BERKUN, AUTHOR OF THE MYTHS OF INNOVATION

"Scott's new book connects the world of fast, startup-driven, design-for-mobile thinking with the traditional world of comparatively slower, "do-it-the-right-way" design and brand thinking. The new world of digital product design is interminably evolving, so this book is a great 2015 snapshot of the way modern digital designers needs to act and behave as more like explorers rather than conservators. Keep in mind that in 2016, 2017, and beyond, however, we should expect even more change to the field of digital product design -- so I look forward to the future editions of Scott's work as a historian of sorts in a rapidly evolving present-tense that gets old the very moment it ships."
JOHN MAEDA, DESIGN PARTNER AT KLEINER PERKINS CAUFIELD & BYERS
