This revolution is just beginning, and it's exciting to have Tragic Design to ground the growing movement of achieving truly inclusive design in the digital era.
Bad design is everywhere, and its cost is much higher than we think. In this thought-provoking book, authors Jonathan Shariat and Cynthia Savard Saucier explain how poorly designed products can anger, sadden, exclude, and even kill people who use them. The designers responsible certainly didn’t intend harm, so what can you do to avoid making similar mistakes?
Tragic Design examines real case studies that show how certain design choices adversely affected users, and includes in-depth interviews with authorities in the design industry. Pick up this book and learn how you can be an agent of change in the design community and at your company.
“Tragic Design shows how thoughtful design solutions drive positive change and make more meaningful products.”
“...a must-read for anyone working in design or support for B2B and Enterprise products/services. In the consumer space, bad UX means your business won't grow. In the enterprise space, the consequences of bad UX can be tragic.”
