Co-founder of Airbnb, Joe Gebbia talks about the role of trust in design and how the insertion of just one well-designed test box on the airbnb website encouraged users to input information about themselves and give just enough information to get over the stranger-danger bias.
In this TED talk Tony Fadell, the man behind the iPod and Nest thermostat, encourages designers to ‘look broader’ and ‘look closer’ during product design. From products with the easiest possible installation to having it come out of the box with enough charge to be able to use it immediately, these little details matter. It all leads to better product design.
